Luncheon and Romantic Tales

November 7       12:30pm – 2pm

 

 

Windsor Historical Society and Windsor Woman’s Club are hosting a fundraiser luncheon on Saturday, November 7 from 12 noon to 1:30 p.m. and you are invited!  Proceeds will benefit the WWC Scholarship Fund and other charities, and the Society’s public programming so you are contributing to good causes.     Enjoy delicious, fancy, and filling luncheon sandwiches, sweets, and Red Rose teas.  Silver, china, and festive table settings will add to your pleasure.  Then listen to some fascinating local tales from storyteller Steve Carter.  This event is held in conjunction with the Windsor Chamber of Commerce’s Windsor Wade Figurine Fair.  

 

Steve Carter hails from a family of storytellers.  His grandmother, father, children and grandchildren all have told stories as raconteurs, writers, and cartoonists.  Carter is fascinated by local history and will provide you with a picture of the past in his half-hour program.  He will tell a romantic story based on true events in the region, a ghost story, and a humorous story detailing the hazards of travel before road improvements of the 20th century.

 

Cost for the tea is $25.00; $22.50 for Windsor Historical Society or Windsor Woman’s Club members.  Tickets are available at Windsor Historical Society.  Reservations MUST be made for this program by November 6th.  Call the Windsor Historical Society at 688-3813, extension 102 to make yours.  The luncheon has been a sellout for the past four years. We are still looking for a few more people to bake and make sandwich fillings.  If you can help, please contact Christine Ermenc at 688-3813 (cermenc@windsorhistoricalsociety.org) or Ann Walsh of the Windsor Woman’s Club at  860-688-5821 (annmwalsh1040@hotmail.com).
