Windsor Celebrated!

We did, indeed! We're still reeling from last weekend's festivities. You can read all about it in our special write-up of the event, Celebrate Windsor. And be sure to check out our Celebrating Windsor Photo Gallery. There was standing-room-only in the East Windsor Chapel, with close to 90 names in our guest book. While folks mingled and browsed the wonderful historical photo displays, Benny Kohn kept the rhythm (& blues), playing soulful, original tunes, old-time favorites, and a very moving rendition of his late father's song, "Windsor Now & Then." Colin Harrington engaged the crowd in a spirited story-telling period prompted by reading entries from our "Favorite Windsor Memories" box; Jim Kierstead shared his abundant knowledge of the East Windsor landmark sites by leading a guided walking tour; and Dick Jacobs took home the gorgeous table handcrafted & generously donated by Scott Brockway for a benefit raffle, which brought in an amazing $465 for Friends of Windsor. The new phone books and stunning Windsor Landmarks Maps were a big hit; and the chapel was filled to brimming with summer flowers, homemade goodies, and a contagious feeling of excitement and connection. We'd like to thank all of you—volunteers and guests alike—for helping us make this day special! And, if you haven't already, be sure to check out the two-page spread in the Berkshire Eagle that ran the following day.
