Think you know a few things about Windsor’s
history? Ok. Got your detective hat on?
Good! Because Friday, August 1 and Saturday,
August 2 mark to the first days to start racing
for the “Windsor Then and Now Scavenger Hunt”.
Pick up your booklet at the Windsor Historical
Society between 10am and 4pm on Friday or
Saturday. Booklets will include clues and
historic images that will leave you guessing and
searching for over 20 spots around Windsor.
Teams will have a few weeks to complete the
booklet. At each spot the team members are
required to collect a stamp, sticker or take a
photograph with their team to be placed in the
book. Books are due back to the Historical
Society no later than August 22 at 4pm but teams
are encouraged to hand in the book as soon as
completed. The first teams to successfully hand
in a completed book with the correct answers
will have the opportunity to ride on the Windsor
Historical Society’s Parade Float for the
September 27th Town Parade. In
addition to the book, other helpful hints are
located within the “Windsor Then and Now: A
Photo History, 1890 – 2008” exhibition located
at the Windsor Historical Society on Palisado
Avenue. Both young and young at heart will have
a blast discovering Windsor’s fascinating
history. Do you think you know the answers?
Put your Windsor History to the test!
