Kathy Queen, representing the Windsor Women’s Club, addressed the council about the club’s project,“Bucket of Caring,” a drive to help victims of a recent tornado in Windsor, Colo.

The bucket contains cleaning supplies to assist the town in its recovery efforts. The cost to sponsor a bucket is $25. Queen asked the council to sponsor 10 buckets for the cause. The council forwarded the matter to the Public Health & Safety/Streets Committee.

Council members noted that the project was admirable, and that some might be willing to donate as private citizens.

The council also announced that Patriotic Pride Week is to be held in the town June 30 through July 5 in celebration of the Fourth of July. This event is to encourage patriotism and the display of the American flag throughout the community. The celebration received the official support of the council.
