Will She Ever Get Done?!

June Reynolds looking dubious.After decades of data gathering and a lifetime of direct observation, Sherwood Historical Society President June Reynolds is bringing her history of Sherwood to its first major stage of completion. Sherwood: A Sense of Time and Place. The History of Sherwood, Oregon, and the Surrounding Area, Volume One: Beginnings to 1919 will be on sale soon. The three hundred+ page masterpiece covers a wide swath of Washington County, in addition to Sherwood. Reynolds is a fourth generation citizen of Washington County. Some of the old families she's related to are Herrington, Head, Teuffel, Holznagel, Daunt, Allen, and Hagg. Her maiden name is Wiesenbach. Even without her book as a guide, the Sherwood Historical Society has already seen through a lot of doors that might have otherwise been closed, thanks to Reynolds.

It is officially DONE!! Yes, the book is done. Ty Rickards will be printing soon and it looks like we should have 100 books by April 1.
We decided to go with the perfect binding to make a "perfect book"; one that you can put on a shelf and look at or put on your coffe table. Cost is $25.00, but worth every penny!--June Reynolds

The Quatama property on the slope overlooking the wetland area is slowly moving down hill 4 to 5 inches. Six of the town houses were evacuated as of April 5th. Each of the houses are worth $250,000. Upon investigation, it was found to be a purely geological
situation.

How can someone in California purchase the wonderful book and have it mailed? My family on my dad's side is from Sherwood and I would love to have this volume as well as look forward to the next one! -- Kathy Kelly Nakamura
