Building on the many conversations that were part of our recent strategic planning process, our Centennial Celebration planning committee worked hard to try to make our centennial a celebration of the entire Windsor community. The committee planned a series of events around the September 1 birthday date that took place in the town’s five historic villages – Hayden Station, Poquonock, Rainbow, Wilson, and Windsor Center. A culminating event, called “All Together Windsor” was held on Palisado Green on October 9.
The purpose of these events was to celebrate the history of each village and ask people to share their Windsor stories – stories that we have shared back through social media and at each event. Excerpts of these stories can be seen below and on our YouTube channel.
We wanted to share a few images of these wonderful events where over 50 Windsor people shared their personal stories, and almost 400 have placed themselves on our giant Windsor map, helping us build a striking visual representation of the town’s rich diversity. Dozens of Society volunteers, valued community partners like WIN-TV, and every staff member committed countless hours to organizing and running these events and to collecting so many Windsor stories!
