Donations presented for new Town Center

The people had an extra reason to celebrate during the Fourth of July celebration on Monday.
Through the work and generosity of two organizations, the needed funds to complete work on the future Town Center were presented.
First, the Windsor Woman’s Club, a member of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs, raised $4,300. This money comes from the profits made at the inaugural 5K Race and Fun Run that took place in early June. Mischelle Goodman and staff of Anytime Fitness worked with club and other volunteers to make that activity happen.
Then the Farmers Bank gave an oversized check of $25,000 to the WWC and Town, which was represented by Mayor Carita Richardson.
All the money will be dedicated to purchasing a new new HVAC system in the community center, which used to be the gymnasium of the old Windsor Middle School.
Goodman said, “The people of Windsor have supported our new business and have taken us in as fellow residents. Anytime Fitness Windsor is glad to do anything that we can to reciprocate and support the people and the Town of Windsor. The new Town Center is a great amenity for the town, and we are glad that an event that was a great addition to Windsor’s calendar of events was also able to support the Woman’s Club and the Town Center.”
Richard Holland Jr., bank president, said, “It is our privilege to give back to the Windsor community who has been so good over the years to Farmers Bank. We take our civic responsibility very serious. This a project that we think will enhance opportunities for our youth for years to come.”
