This month’s “Notable Folk” is Carol Kearns. Retired after 31 years of teaching elementary school in Shoreline, Winlock, and Onalaska school districts, Carol is currently teaching parenting classes in Mossyrock. She’s taught similar classes through the Centralia College in Winlock, Onalaska, Centralia, and Toledo. “I think that the parents who are taking it find it very beneficial,” she admits, quite content with the progress she’s making. She is also the Choir Director and has an Administrative Council chair at the Winlock United Methodist Church, which she has been involved in for over 30 years. And, last but not least, Carol is also serving her second term as President of the Sigma Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma, which honors women educators. Between all her various positions, Carol is plenty busy doing a lot for the community. Thanks for everything, Carol.
Now, I just wanted to send out another reminder about the Winlock Historical Museum’s hours. They are open on Wednesdays from noon to 4:30 p.m. “Come one, come all. Admission free,” Ken Vogel, one of the museum’s curators, has said. To sweeten that deal, he’s even promised to have chocolate available to visitors if he’s the one on duty. As a member of a family with small children, I certainly can’t pass that up. For more information, please contact Ken Vogel at 785-0567 or Paul Foster at 785-3935.
The Winlock Timberland Library will be hosting The Mimic Clinic starring Charlie “The Noiseguy” Williams on Saturday, March 9th, at 2 p.m. Charlie will be presenting a show full of hilarious sound impressions, where kids and their families can learn to make noise and voice imitations of their own. For more information on these or future events, please contact the library at 785-3461.
