Did you know that there were two completely different cultures that thrived in our community before the town of Winters was established? Winters historian Joann Larkey prepares documents to show participants in next week’s program, “Making History.” The event is designed to give everyone a chance to help make the dream of creating a place for Winters history to be on display here in Winters.

The Winters Historical Society will be presenting information on ways every person in Winters can get involved in building a Winters Museum. The Winters Historical Society needs volunteers to be on an Acquisition Team, to serve on the Docent Team, to form a Museum Steering Committee, to be on a Display Team, and they need everyone to be a part of the Winters Historical Society. There are even more ways Winters citizens can participate.

Come hear about ways in which Winters Citizens can get involved in building a place for Winters History. The meeting is next Tuesday, April 10, at 6:30 p.m. at the Palms Playhouse on 13 Main Street. A no-host bar will be available from 6:30-7 p.m. and the program will start promptly at 7 p.m.

The program will include a brief history of Winters and tell about the forgotten communities of Libatos and Buckeye. The other members of the Winters Historical Society will tell about their efforts to preserve Winters, and a brief discussion period will follow. Plans will be established for the next phase of establishing a Museum in Winters. The event will end at 8:30 p.m.
