Thurmont Welcomed the World, May 18-19, 2012
Thurmont’s Economic Development Committee and Thurmont First Main Street extended a warm welcome to all G8 Summit visitors and we invite you to stop at our many shops, restaurants and attractions while you are in the area. Like many of our visitors you will find Thurmont and our surroundings to be a great little get away. Once you experience the fresh mountain air, quiet lifestyle, beautiful scenery, great parks and recreation facilities and warm welcoming residents it will be obvious why Thurmont serves as the site of the Presidential retreat at Camp David.
