I think spring is trying to break through, today I was walking outside and I noticed daffodils almost ready to blossom. The weather seemed to have turn this week as well; it has been a few beautiful days, sunshine and no rain. Can it be springtime? Is it finally here? I don’t know about you but I love spring, time to work in the yard and make it a relaxing place to be this summer.  

This week in my “Get to Know Ya” series, I had the honor of interviewing Viola Chickese; I must admit I was impressed. Not by her answers but by her passion for Winlock, she is a Lady who wants to see the town get back to its former glory. A town we are all proud to live in and one where everyone is proud to be a part of. Her dedication to Winlock is admirable, her involvement remarkable, her desire to want to turn Winlock around – impressive. Here is my interview:

TC: What is your idea of perfect happiness?

VC: Family, Friends and Involvement.

TC: What is your greatest fear?

VC: Rejection

TC: What is your greatest accomplishment?

VC: My Children

TC: What is the one thing the people in Winlock may not know about you?

VC: That I have a desire to see Winlock becomes a town that is bustling.

Viola is a business owner in Winlock; she is the owner of All About Accounting.  Even though she is very busy this time of year for taxes, she still finds the time to be involved.  We should all take lessons from her, it will be her desire and drive that will turn Winlock back in to the town is used to be, I have a feeling even better!
