Taking place in Thurmont, Saturday, October 26.
Each year the Thurmont Lion's Club hosts 'Make A Difference Day' to honor those who do just that in the community.
The event is taking place on Saturday, October 26, with a lot of activities on tap, including the unveiling of a mural on an old building, which is an important part of Thurmont's history. "It's in downtown Thurmont, and it used to be the trolley station, and what we are going to do is wrap it with a mural showing the history of Thurmont," said Yemi, local artist. The original artwork will be auctioned during the program and commemorative gift items will be available for purchase.
The ceremony will be held at 1:00 p.m. at the entrance to the carnival grounds, but in case of inclement weather it will be moved to the Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Social Hall.
Awards for Volunteer of the Year and Police Officer of the Year will be presented. Light refreshments will be available after the program.
The trolley and the transfer station are an important part of the history of Thurmont. The Hagerstown and Frederick Railway electric trolley system included a station in Thurmont, on Main Street. The original depot is gone, but the transfer station remains. The trolley rests on the spot where the depot was located. It provided residents with an alternative method of travel in the early 1900's.
