The Winters Museum currently has a great exhibit on the history of the town of Monticello. It followed the exhibit on the lost Japanese community. Both of these exhibits involved months of planning and the gathering of photos, artifacts, and stories. They also included the involvement of several people who each contributed not only to the gathering of items for the exhibits but also in the installation and storytelling.

The Board of the Winters Museum made the decision to highlight sports in Winters as the next exhibit. Even though the Monticello exhibit will be up until the end of October, it is time to start planning for this new exhibit.

We are asking the community to contribute information on people and sports in the community. It would be great, for example, if there is someone that has additional information on the history of the Little League, AYSO, adult sports teams, or swim team. At the very least, do you or anyone you know have any artifacts, photos, stories about someone affiliated with Winters sports? Who/what would you like to see included in this exhibit? We really would appreciate community involvement in this exhibit!

We can accept your photos on loan or make digital copies. Other artifacts can be on loan and returned at the end of the exhibit.

Please contact the Winters Museum at wintersmuseum@gmail.com.

Thank you,
Gloria Lopez and Tom Crisp
