Ryderwood News 1.27.16

The turnout for the showing of the historic 1926 silent movie about Long-Bell was impressive. The Auditorium was "standing room only" with a head count of at least 170. The panel members were very helpful in narrating and explaining the various operations involved in transforming standing timber into kiln-dried lumber. The Cowlitz Co. Historical Museum was instrumental in making this event so successful. They furnished the digital projector and two of the panelists, Jim Tweedie and Jim LeMonds, are researchers for the Museum.

Winlock News 1.27.16

I thought it was time for a little stroll down memory lane for those of us who have been around Winlock for a while. How many of you remember the old school? There was a school in Winlock when I was young that was both the grade school, middle school and high school all rolled in to one. I can remember being a kid in the old school and the upstairs was roped off, we were sure the upstairs was haunted and that is why they had it roped off. There were also posts that were by the football field and boy did we jump those, we used to see who could jump the highest one without hurting oneself. This was a time when Winlock was a town like Mayberry, everyone knew everyone and no one was a stranger.
