Winchester Happenings

Our Christmas with Santa program will be this Saturday, Dec. 12 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. in our Town Hall. The Caramel Festival Committee is working with the Winchester Police Department to distribute clothing items to children in need. If you have any coats, sweaters or socks for kids, please leave them at the Town Hall by Dec. 7. We will have a small gift bag for the children and serve cookies and hot chocolate. I just found out for certain that Santa will be visiting from the North Pole to help us celebrate. There will be a manger scene and we are inviting our local churches to participate in the caroling on that day. Rebecca Chandler is helping to coordinate this.

W3CU Compassion Ministries will be hosting the December food and clothing distribution on Dec. 10 (instead of Dec. 17) at 2:30 p.m. This is for the month of December only. If you or someone you know normally attends on the third Thursday, please let them know about the change.

Winchester’s Past (Florence Bryson): Fred Dunn was born in Brown County in 1898. He was the son of Cornelius and Lizzie Fender Dunn. He married Eva Massie of Winchester in 1923. She was born in 1903, the daughter of Samuel and Maud Edgington Massie. Both the Massie and Edgington families were pioneers in Adams County. Their first child was James born in 1924, Patsy in 1926 and Paul in 1927. When Fred started working for Railway Express, they moved to Winchester from Cincinnati. The children all graduated from Winchester High School. James was in the Navy and Paul was in the Army in WW II. James married Wanita Downs and died in Florida in 1997 but is buried here. Paul died in Cincinnati in 1994 and is also buried here. Patsy married Bill Osman and they moved to California, where she still lives. Fred died in 1986 and Eva in1999. They are all buried on the same lot as Eva’s parents.
