Winlock business owner passes; leaves a void in the community

This week Winlock lost a business owner and friend, Suzanne Smith owner of Grinders for the past 22 years. She passed away on Wednesday, October 30, 2019 in Centralia Washington.

For many, Suzanne was how they started their day. She would fill everyone up with a morning coffee drink, hot or cold. She had a beautiful smile and when you drove up to her window, you were guaranteed to get a smile. She was always happy to see her customers, she made a point of knowing everyone's favorite drink. If you changed it up, she would always ask which drink today.

Suzanne was loved by many in the community, the posting of her passing on Facebook was full of comments.

Winlock Community Garden adds orchard

On Saturday, November 2, the community gathered to plant the Winlock Community orchard to add to the garden at Winlock High School.

The American Legion opens membership to most vets

The American Legion Post #150 is now accepting membership of most U.S. veterans due to the LEGION act. This act was signed into effect on July 30, 2019, and honors U.S. service members that were killed or wounded during previously undeclared periods of war.

"It used to be that you had to serve during a time of war like the Vietnam Conflict or Korea," said American Legion Adjutant-Finance Officer Gordon Aleshire. "There were gaps in between those conflicts where those guys weren't eligible to join. The LEGION Act said that since December 7, 1941, if you served in the military, you can join the Legion."

The act gives approximately 6,000,000 veterans access to the American Legion programs and benefits. The main change was to reduce the seven war categories down to two: April 6, 1917, to November 11, 2918, and December 7, 1941, to a date to be declared later.
