The Catholic Church canonized two new saints on April 27. In order to be called saints, there has to be proof by miracles that they are in Heaven. Pope John XXIII and Pope John Paul II are now in the ranks of listed saints. What a wonderful example they have been for everyone.
Mike Dill, a board member of the Museum of Winchester History, will be guiding a tour of the logging camps south of Winchester on May 23 and June 14. A bus with a loud speaker system will be used so Mike can narrate and answer questions about the history of the camps. The tour will begin at the museum in Winchester, 417 McBeth, at 9 a.m. with enlarged maps for a preview of the tour. At 10 a.m. the bus will leave and continue for about four hours. Bring a lunch with you. The cost is $10 per person. The bus will accommodate 30 people so reservations will need to be made in advance by calling Janene Alley at 924-7920 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Payment needs to be made prior to the bus tour. Checks should be made payable to the Museum of Winchester History and can be sent to 2191 Airport Rd., Craigmont, ID 83523.
