FOR SOMETHING GOOD
Winton is a small unincorporated town in the Central Valley.
While it regularly makes the news for drugs and gang activities, we find that there is so much more going on there.
Many of the residents live in the shadows of the Immigration Debate, many of the farmers struggle to make ends meet with an ever-rising cost of things and a drought that makes farming difficult.
With all this comes resilience. A strength from deep within that encourages people to get up, and stand up taller and try again.
In 2006 we were asked to take over the work that had begun years before by a pastor with a passion for the Winton community. John & Wanda Conley had laid a wonderful foundation of community members caring enough to act.
In 2008 we met with community members and helped them dream about their preferred future and the slogan "Putting Winton on the Map for something Good" was developed.
Over the last few years many things have happened, all driven by local community members and supported by volunteers, groups, and outside sources.
