Efforts are underway to raise money for a new Windsor Veterans Memorial and to list the names of Windsor residents who have served our nation.
This is a very huge undertaking. There is much work that has to be done before they will have an actual amount of what the project will cost. There is a Veterans Memorial Committee and they are working on the details that are necessary to find what the costs will be for this project. A rough estimate of approximately $45,000 will be needed to erect the monument and landscaping, but as mentioned, there is still much to do before they will have an actual cost.
They are in the beginning stages of raising funds for this project. It is anticipated that there will be many fundraising opportunities in the future and they welcome any help and ideas. If you are interested in being on the Fundraising Committee, please contact Joyce Perry at 445-2998 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The new monument will be placed at the existing site at the corner of Ridge Road and Reed Road. The new Windsor Veterans Memorial will not do away with the existing memorial, but the existing memorials will be incorporated with a new and larger monument in order to honor all veterans that have served from Windsor.
The Fundraising Committee along with much help from many community members, are planning a benefit supper on March 24, at the Windsor School.
The supper will be from 5-7 p.m., and the meal will be: spaghetti, baked beans, hot dogs, brown bread, coleslaw, garlic bread and Caesar salad. Punch, coffee and also homemade desserts including a number of various pies and sheet cakes will be served.
Donations will be accepted at the door. Come and join to help with this honorable cause and enjoy and share time with community members and families.
