Volume 1 #1 was published in February 1951. In March 1973 the Winfield Women’s Institute published their last issue. The Winfield Hospital Auxiliary assumed sponsorship of the newsletter continuing to publish it monthly until they sold it in 1979.

On Dec. 22nd 2007 the last edition of the Weekender was produced as a decision of the new management.
