A ground-breaking for the Wintergreen Townhomes project will take place Aug. 3 at noon.

The project includes affordable housing.

The public ceremony will be at 1320 and 1329 Wintergreen Lane NE.

Rotary record

The Rotary Auction & Rummage Sale brought in a record $729,386.

All of the net proceeds go to: grants to local nonprofits; community improvement projects; humanitarian projects worldwide; and scholarships to high school seniors who demonstrate “service above self.”

Along with that, the sale at Woodward Middle School was a massive recycle/reuse/repurpose effort. Tons of cardboard, metal and plastic were recycled. Local nonprofits were able to go through the site after the sale to take unsold items.

Meet mayor

Mayor Joe Deets is having open office hours July 30 from 10 a.m. to noon at CUPS Espresso on 123 Bjune Drive SE in Winslow.
