Facebook Activity for Wapella

Wapella Flag Flies High for Winnie Harris is proudly waving the Wapella flag today for one of the village finest, Dwynn "Winnie" Harris is getting our full salute today.

For many years Winnie has graced our village with her smile, her wit, and her dedication to children's education, her Parish and Wapella sports. Today, the Board of Wapella Historians is smiling back at Winnie and cheering on one of the most pleasant people in the Village.

So let the bands play, the flags fly, and may the village hoist a tall glass of good cider for this great lady, who along with her husband Kent Harris, have been such fine neighbors and friends to everyone in Wapella for the last 55 years or so.

Three Cheers for a great Wapella Wildcat, Winnie Harris!
