The Winlock Historical Museum

Winlock Historical Museum expands its collection

by Lynnette Hoffman The Winlock Historical Museum had successfully raised enough money to buy some of the items from the Roy Richards Estate. When Roy passed away, there were many items in the Renegade Rooster that many wanted to see displayed in the Winlock Historical Museum. The Winlock Historical Museum was able to raise enough money to complete a transaction with the estate of Roy Richards for the purchase of items in his collection related to the history of the community of Winlock. During the month of October the members of the Winlock Historical Board moved files, photos, and many other artifacts from Roy’s Renegade Rooster See vader Page 3 museum.

Some articles are now being sorted, cleaned, and organized in the Winlock Historical Museum, located in the old Fire Hall in downtown Winlock. Other items are stored, awaiting additional space for display—the next challenge of the museum. The museum board believes that these purchases have saved important history. Donations have helped make it possible to promote and preserve Winlock’s heritage for future generations. Many in the community are excited to see the purchases. The Winlock Historical Museum board wished to thank the community for the generous donations to our fund-raising program conducted during the summer months.

Well, it looks like only Wednesday and Friday will be the break we need! Then it’s back to scattered showers, the typical weather for western Washington. Congratulations Winlock Cardinal Football for beating Walla Walla. On Friday, the school had a big kickoff for the kids. At this time we do not know if there will be one before the game. They played hard and fought a hard battle, but in the end it was the win for Winlock. I have been informed that Winlock will not be having their annual Turkey Bingo this year due to COVID. Hopefully, they will be able to bring it back next year. It was a long few hours when the Winlock Railroad tracks were blocked. There are many ways around but unfortunately they are time consuming. It also slows down our emergency services, just know this group knows the backroads and they will be there as soon as they can. Heidi Howland is putting together a group for Christmas Caroling this year, look for more details as they become available. Winlock Food Bank: There has been a huge increase in demand at the local food bank. They will be hosting a donation event from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. More information to follow in coming weeks.

His condition is unknown at the time of print. No other injuries were reported. Cowlitz/Lewis Fire Chief Richard Underdahl stated, “The fire could not have been successfully extinguished without the mutual aid agencies, we appreciate their help! The value of loss with both the home and trailer are unknown at this time.” The residence was involved in a previous fire in 2017 and was still standing, but not inhabited. A fire investigator was called and responded to the scene. The incident is under investigation.
