I heard from Joann Porter that the Rummage Sale at the Winlock Olequa Senior Center was quite a success. They wanted to thank everyone who gave items, helped in setting it up and for those who purchased the goods. She said it was a lot of fun and the community really came together to support the center, thank you Winlock for showing what a great community we all live in!
This is the second segment of my two-part interview with Winlock Middle School instructor Mike Voie. I have known Mike all my life and he is one of those guys that, if you have known him, he is always happy to see you and help any way he can. He is one of those educators who takes his job seriously, he wants to see his students succeed and will do anything he can to make it happen for them. I can’t think of one bad characteristic Mike has, he is devoted to his family, his community and his students. Thank you for coming back to Winlock, Winlock is a better place because you are here!!
