Well-known north Hempstead County citizen James Thurman turned 100 this past weekend and had quite a celebration.  A “drive-by” celebration was held with many Blevins residents coming by to wave and express well-wishes.  The participants in the parade were served cake and the Thurmans were obviously delighted.

Mr. Thurman was a long-time member of the Hempstead County Quorum Court and also was active in bringing rural water to the area.  Our best wishes go to birthday boy James Thurman!  We appreciate his many years of service and know he appreciated the celebration!
