2017 Greetings from the Winfield Historical Society and Museum,
It's membership renewal time for us and we look forward to your
support. Our survival depends solely on membership, donations and
memorials. In order for us to preserve our history of Winfield it
is imperative that we acquire new members. Please encourage
friends and relatives to help us in continuing our local history of
Winfield. These are some things that were accomplishments in 2016
and some continued goals for 2017.
This year we will be having a program
on Vietnam. It will be on Sunday, February 5, 2017 at 2:00 p.m.
at the Winfield City Building (Legion). Mike Sells will be
presenting the program and we hope other Vietnam veterans will join us.
This is open to the public and refreshments will be served.
A free will donation is appreciated. Please mark your calendars
and join us.
