Community Remembers and Honors Loved Ones

Each year the Pilot Club of Winnfield honors and memorializes many of its citizens through the community Christmas tree.  A light is purchased by those wanting to recognize them and placed on the tree.  This year the tree is displayed in the window of the Social Coffee House located at 301 E. Main Street in Winnfield.  

During the holidays it is especially difficult not to have loved ones with us.  As a memorial, we recognize those who have gone before us. These people were memorialized by their loved ones this year.
