Don’t forget about the new pinochle classes, which have started up on Tuesdays at the Olequa Senior Center at 9 a.m. Their weekly coffee klatch is scheduled at that time as well.
Oh, and Zumba is still going on at the center on Mondays and Wednesday nights at 6 p.m. There’s a discount for seniors! For more information, please contact the center at (360) 785-4325.
I’d just like to remind everyone (particularly those individuals who have bored kids at home this summer, as I do) about the Winlock Historical Museum. Their free exhibits are still open from noon to 4:30 p.m., and I hear that they’ve got recipe books from Winlock residents for sale now, complete with tons of historical photographs of Winlock! If you have any questions, please call Ken Vogel at (360) 785-0567 or Paul Foster at (360) 785-3935.
On Thursday, July 18th, Eric Haines—a comedian, juggler, puppeteer, and one-man band—will be performing at the Winlock Timberland at 1 p.m. Children are invited to play along!
Teenagers are welcome to explore the world of Marissa Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles series on Friday, July 19th, at 2 p.m. at the library. There, you can make your own android companion, design cyborg-inspired jewelry, craft a Chinese paper lantern, and try to survive a plague game.
But that’s not it for the teenage crowd! On Wednesday, July 24th, the library will be hosting a Teen Game Night from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The festivities include DDR, Rock Band, Just Dance, and board games. Refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Winlock Timberland Library.
All of these events are part of Summer Reading, a Timberland Regional Library district-wide program. For more information, you can contact the library at (360) 785-3461.
Then, of course, be sure to check out the Winlock Farmer’s Market, which is set up near the Egg on Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. They’re always on the lookout for new and unique vendors. If interested, please call Jeanie at (360) 785-4817.
