    Community kitchen at Ozark Folkways

    Whether you call it social capital or community sprite there seems to be plenty of it in the village and hills around Winslow, Arkansas. The town without a school, in the corner of county bubbles with creativity, energy and projects that keep the little community not just alive, but exuberant. If a Christmas Parade, Winfest, Forth Fireworks, Labor Day Picnic, Farmers Market, Community Meals, Half Marathan Run, Free Little Libraries, Recycling, Monthly Newsletter, Community Theater aren’t enough now they have a community kitchen. Here is a report by Rebecca Buchanan from Ozark Folkways about the new kitchen. Dear Friends of Folkways, I am proud to share the amazing “ongoing” creation story of the “Adair Ford Levine Rural Community Kitchen”  at Ozark Folkways. I say ongoing, because we are not done yet! I am, happy to say, we are inching closer each day to our dream, multi-use, rural community teaching kitchen. As amazing as you will  find the collaborative nature of this endeavor, the effort, as I said, is ongoing, so the document you are viewing does not contain a complete listing of the gifts of time, energy and money donated. That changes every week. And that is EXCITING! We would like it …

    The 3rd annual Winslow Half Marathon and 5k Run will take place on September 14th in the historic village of Winslow. Sponsored by the Winslow Community Development Council and numerous local and regional businesses, the race benefits community nonprofit organizations. Last year’s event raised over eight thousand dollars and attracted more than three hundred race participants from Northwest Arkansas and across the country. Race organizers hope to build on past year’s successes and have set an upper limit of five hundred  runners for this year’s race. The certified and chip timed Half Marathon starts at 8:00 at the Winslow Library and follows a challenging in an out course ending at the finish line at Peek’s Park. Runner’s, visitors and locals will once again be treated to a community expo at the park.  Park festivities include displays by local artists,  non profit and community organizations, live music and a barbecue luncheon  provided by Winslow Community Meals. Festivities wrap up around noon, just in time for the 31st Annual Winfest local music festival. For more information or to register, visit www.winslowrun.com

  5. Another Person’s Treasure

    Another Person’s Treasure By Annie McCormick So it is said about trash. However, some trash is treasure. I was in the midst of thousands of square feet of it last weekend at the Fort Smith Flea Market. There were a few Winslowites there selling their items as well as many from our area searching for treasures. Rene Banks had some great vintage saddles and magazines for sale. I have favorites from almost all 20th century styles. Not so much Victorian and not anything from the 80s on, but I like Mid-Century Modern, Art Deco and Retro. “Retro” is from the 50s and 60s; also called the “Space Age.” Lots of turquoise, light green and pink combined with black. Cool stuff and lots of it at this flea market.

    NEWS FROM THE WINSLOW MUSEUM Special to the Observer from Bev Simpson This past year was very successful for the Winslow Museum.  Through a $2500.00 grant from the Arkansas Heritage Foundation, the museum hosted several programs for Arkansas Heritage Month in May.  The spotlight was on Winslow’s own Maud Dunlap Duncan.  Maud was a school teacher, pharmacist, Mayor of Arkansas’ first all-woman city government, and owner and publisher of the Winslow American Newspaper.  There is an exhibit in the museum which honors Maud and her involvement in the newspaper. Two dramas were also performed by community volunteers honoring the many accomplishments of this great lady.
