Shad Derby a great success!
With the help of the weather - the rain came in early and the rest of the day was dry but cloudy - Windsor had the best Shad Derby for many years. This year, for the first time, the second area of the green, the one in front of the Post Office was also full of people - a major relief for both organizers and vendors. And, as usual, the Republicans had the most fun booth in the Shad Derby - although Al Simon probably begs to differ.
Memorial Day Observances and Parade
The Town of Windsor Public Celebrations Committee is proud to announce that the 2015 Memorial Day Parade Marshal is Windsor resident Clifford Primus, U.S. Marine Corps. Primus is one of the Montford Point Marines, the nation's first black marines, and a recipient of the Congregational Gold Medal. Congress awarded the Montford Point Marines with the medal for their sacrifice and service to the nation, and is the highest civilian honor bestowed by the United States Congress. Primus served with the 51st Defense Battalion during the Marshall Islands campaign in World War II, operating anti-aircraft weapons protecting the force. Primus has lived in Windsor since he returned from the Pacific, and has worked for Stanadyne, and other local companies.
