I’d like to start out with an apology. While I try not to make mistakes, I’m too absent-minded not to do so. Last week, I gave a reminder about the Winlock Historical Museum’s schedule of noon to 4:30 p.m. without mentioning that this only occurs on Wednesdays. Sorry about that, guys. If you have any further questions, please call Ken Vogel at (360) 785-0567 or Paul Foster at (360) 785-3935.
The Olequa Senior Center will be expanding their pinochle classes, and are now starting up several card groups (cribbage is included)! On Tuesdays, from this moment on, lunch will be served at 11:30 a.m. The games are scheduled to follow immediately. They ask that you call (360) 785-4325 or drop by the center to make reservations. Lunch costs $4, and there is a suggested donation of $1 to play cards.
The Winlock Timberland Library will be hosting the Astoria-based quintet Brownsmead Flats on Thursday at 1 p.m. Their traditional and original songs (often filled with humor) are conducted with vocal harmonies, guitar, fiddle, banjo, mandolin, and more.
Author Marissa Meyer is coming to town! The author of the young adult novels, "Cinder" and its sequel "Scarlet" will be at the library on Friday at 2 p.m. She will be giving a talk to teens about her books as well as the writing process. And, of course, she’ll sign books, which will be available for purchase.
Lastly, the library is celebrating the famous J.K. Rowling books with a Harry Potter Birthday Party sponsored by the Friends of the Winlock Timberland Library. The games begin at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, July 30. There will also be crafts and refreshments. Costumes are strongly encouraged. These events are part of Summer Reading. For more information on these or future events, please contact the library at (360) 785-3461.
