Just received word that Egg Day 2020 has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Here is the notice that was sent out:

It is a sad day for Winlock, our volunteers, and our participants to have to make this announcement:

After much deliberation, both the Lions Club of Winlock and the Egg Day Committee have decided to cancel our 2020 Egg Day Festival. Egg Day was postponed during World War II for a total of four years. Now our world is facing another battle with COVID-19. We hope you all stay healthy and plan on heading to Winlock the third weekend of June in 2021 for our 100th Anniversary Egg Day Celebration!

Any entry fees or sponsorship dollars that were sent by vendors, advertisers, or parade participants for 2020 will be credited to our 2021 festival. If you’d prefer to receive a refund please send your request to [email protected] and your money will be refunded as soon as possible.

Egg Day is funded solely by donations. Button and ad sales are our primary source of these donations. Although we were able to cancel most of our planned activities, we had already ordered and have received our 2020 Egg Day buttons. We will not be having our royalty contestants selling buttons this year, but the buttons will be made available for purchase as soon as we iron out the logistics. 😢

HAPPY EASTER, WINLOCK!Stay home, stay safe and enjoy the sunshine.  These are historical times.

HAPPY EGG DAY, WINLOCK! The vendors kept the downtown area busy this year, however the location of one was a little frustrating for us at the museum.

THANK YOU for your service!

To clear up any confusion, the General Membership Meeting is NOT at 5pm, it is at the traditional 2pm on Sunday, January 22nd at the museum. We will be electing officers and encourage you to be there and run for a position or simply volunteer to help out! We need new blood and new energy. It's not a huge commitment, but is necessary to stay operational and, heaven forbid, open!

If you've passed by the museum recently, you may have noticed it's been painted! The painter is now working on the city, then over to the Community Building. Things are looking better in Winlock.

For those of you who follow the local newspaper and see the museum's schedule change from one issue to another, let it be known that we followed the newspaper's original announcement and voted to close for the season at the end of September instead of October.

Though we have now ended our season, I can still be contacted for an appointment if you're visiting, entertaining visitors who wish to view the exhibits or have photos or items you wish to share. Call Dave at: 360-880-6895.

We are also planning to offer field trips for interested classes at the elementary school in the next month. So, the door may be locked for the season, but the key is only a phone call away.

08/27/2014

If you haven't visited us yet this year, today is your last chance to see the displays in their entirety. Much of the school display will be returned to the high school this week before school starts. Also, if you have any old athletic equipment and are willing to loan or gift to the museum, now would be a great time. The museum will be open today from 1 - 3:30. Hope to see you there!

Winlock class of 1946 now has a FB page . The class of 46 meets every year and would like to see your pictures and comment , not just 1946
How old is Winolequa Park?
Winlock, knew Winlock from about 1935 to 1948. Went to school for the 12 years. Mother moved us into town in 1942 after our Father died. Trying to think about that photo at the top. Was it where Davis's drug store was or was it the opposite drug store place. Don't what year this photo was taken.
