A note from Megan & Meisha

Due to the Thanksgiving Holiday, we will not be creating a post for the Winterset Citizen next week.
Please enjoy this DOUBLE version with our thanks; to the community we live in, our sponsors, our families and friends for supporting our endeavors throughout the year.  We are exceedingly grateful to all and encouraged to see what will come next as we search for ways to enliven, enrich and enjoy our community.

The Winterset Optimist Club invites children and families to a free showing of “Wonder Park” (rated PG) on Monday, November 25, at 10:30 a.m. at the Iowa Theater. Viewers should buckle up for this epic animated adventure where anything is possible. A young girl named June with a big imagination makes an incredible discovery—the amusement park of her dreams has come to life! Filled with the world’s wildest rides and operated by fun-loving animals, the excitement never ends. But when trouble hits, June and her misfit team of furry friends begin an unforgettable journey to save the park.
