Hello, all. Can you believe it’s a new year! I’m still reeling.
Well, first off, I’d like to send out a general thank you to the United Methodist Women of Winlock, who delivered a ham and turkey dinner complete with pies to the local women’s shelter for Christmas. In addition, they gave lots of toys, hats, gloves, and toiletry items. Thanks, ladies, for everything you do!
