Please join us for a special screening of WIN-TV’s production Dillon’s Market: A Look Back. From 1906 to 1976, this beloved community market on Broad Street was a place where everybody knew your name.   Remember before the days of shopping carts when you’d go up to the counter and ask a friendly staff person to retrieve the groceries you wanted from behind the counter?  Remember being a kid with your nose pressed up against a glass case watching the butchers at work? Learn more about three generations of this civically-engaged Windsor family and the market they ran.

After the screening, Jenny Hawran, the film’s producer, and Dillon siblings will reminisce and answer questions. Rabbett Insurance is sponsoring refreshments after the program, so bring a friend and come spend a delightful afternoon with us rekindling memories.

This coming year, WIN-TV and Windsor Historical Society will kick off a Windsor stories-gathering program.  A ten-minute preview, featuring portions of interviews with Nan Carmon, and Margie Carmon D’Agata will introduce this project. If you have Windsor stories to share and would like to be interviewed, please contact Windsor Historical Society Archivist Michelle Tom mtom@windsorhistoricalsociety.org or WIN-TV Executive Director Jenny Hawran (jenny.h@win-tv.org).

 

$6 adults, $5 seniors and students, $4 members and WIN-TV affiliates. Proceeds will be split between the Society and WIN-TV.
