Halloween is this week and I look forward to seeing the younger kids in our community dressing up in their favorite costumes. I remember trick or treating in downtown, going house to house and eating as much candy as my little heart desired. Winlock is a great community for trick or treating. You can feel safe that your kids can walk around and get candy from residents in the downtown area.
We have a lot of activities coming up in Winlock. I hope you can attend at least one of the below mentioned fun filled activity.
Winlock Methodist is having their Annual Bazaar Craft sale on Nov. 6 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will be outside vendors as well as a White Elephant gift. Lunch is available for a suggested $7 donation between 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. To be served will be their famous turkey casserole, green beans, cranberry salad and angel food cake with peppermint frosting. I have always enjoyed their crochet kitchen cloths, I hope they will be there this year.
