On Saturday, the fall carnival is returning to the Winlock Miller Elementary. It promises games, prizes, costume contests (they ask that there are no weapons or hoods, please), cakewalks, and lots of food to go around. Pre-sale tickets are 5/$1, which you can purchase at the school’s office, or 4/$1 at the door. All ages are invited, although kids must be accompanied by an adult. And a big thanks to the Winlock PTSA and Winlock FFA for sponsoring this year’s carnival!
The Winlock Lionesses will be hosting Bunco, a classic parlor game, at 6 p.m. on Thursday at the Olequa Senior Center. It costs $20 to play, and that includes refreshments, prizes, pies, and a chance to hang out with your friends. A silent auction will be running at the same time.
Speaking of the senior center...their commodities are scheduled for the 4th Friday of the month (Oct. 25) from 10 a.m. to noon. This resource is available to all local residents in need. In addition, the center would like to remind the community that they are still folding newspapers on Mondays. For more information on these or future events, please contact the center at (360) 785-4325.
The Winlock United Methodist Church’s annual luncheon is coming up on Thursday, Nov. 7, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. For the recommended donation of $7, there will be their traditional turkey casserole, cranberry sauce, green beans, and angel food cake with peppermint cool whip. Their bazaar and bake sale will also be going on from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. that same day. They are currently taking in outside vendors. Please contact Jo Hepner at (360) 785-4248 if you’re interested in renting a space.
Also, this same church would like to brag about their new minister, Pam Brokaw, who is quite a gal. In addition to a sweet, bubbly disposition, she’s already got lots of ideas. They are happy to have her. And to Cathy Todd of Castle Rock, a big thank you! Cathy, you drive to Winlock’s branch of the United Methodist Church every Sunday to play the piano, in addition to playing in Castle Rock’s. Thank you so much, Cathy, for your dedication.
