Wildland Firefighters' Memorial

Recently, I attended the dedication of the wildland firefighters’ memorial in Winthrop’s Mack Lloyd park. On behalf of the Town of Winthrop, I want to express how honored and grateful we are to be able to provide a home for this beautiful and important memorial. The Town also wishes to thank all those who worked on, donated to, and supported this project over the years. Wildland fire is part of our lives in the Methow Valley and we must always remember and honor those who put themselves in harm’s way to protect our lives and property from it.

Thank You,

Dave Acheson

Mayor of Winthrop
