Since the Mill was burned down by a yet unknown arsonist, it’s been a shell.
However, a new look has been revealed, and all of Windsor is anticipating it’s re-opening.
It’s been paired down a bit and will not be as tall, but it will still retain much of its historic look and is sure to be a huge crowd-attractor when finished.
Can’t wait till construction begins!!
My kids’ are opening up their lemonade/baking stand again this summer.
For sale: lemonade, cookies, brownies, cupcakes, sweet breads, peanut butter balls, and weekly specials. You never know what the treat will be! This year the kids are raising money for the Windsor High School Cross Country meet in California in September!
On the corner of 9th & Walnut Streets here in Windsor. Grab a coffee at Dutch Bros and then a treat and lemonade from my kiddos! Hours vary.
To celebrate its grand opening of the Windsor store, Dutch Bros is offering free 16 oz drinks to all all day long!
If you are in the neighborhood, swing by! I’m sure it will be busy but what a great time to try Dutch Bros.
Address is: 901 Main Street. It’s across from the Middle School.
Now the hard part: choosing which one to get!
I just want to thank those who voted for me for the Windsor Town Board.
As you all know, I lost. I appreciate your support, and I will continue to serve on the Board of Adjustments for this great town.
As for the future, I’m unsure. I’m praying about what to do next as I truly believed God wanted me to serve as a Board member (it’s obvious I was mistaken now).
I’m also unsure what to do with this site. I started it with the intent to keep you all informed of what was happening when I was on the Town Board. I will do my best to continue in that capacity although the Town Board does have information privy only to them.
I am also looking for other ways to serve so send ideas my way!!
Again, thank you to all who voted for me. I’m eternally grateful for your support.
The Town Board of Windsor utilizes many different Town Boards and Commissions to review projects, gather information, and make recommendations. These are all volunteer-based, which pulls from the community at large. This is an amazing opportunity for residents to lend their skills and talents to help their communities.
Once a year we all gather for a thank-you dinner. These are always fun to see one another, put names with faces, and recognize the time invested. Last night we gathered at the Embassy Suites in Loveland for a wonderful dinner and acknowledgments.
Our thank-you prize this year was a coffee tumbler with gift cards inside! I’m SO excited about this because 1) as you know I’m obsessed with coffee and 2) one of the gift cards was Starbucks!!! 3) the other gift card was to Mr. Yo’s Donuts so when I returned home and informed my kids of this, they were ecstatic!!
I would like to personally thank all of the volunteers on their respective boards. These are passionate people who donate their time and efforts to making Windsor an amazing community. It was so good to see everyone last night and learn a bit more about what everyone does. Thank you for your service and see you at Starbucks!!
Tonight was Coffee with the Director of the Clearview Library, Ann Kling, at Toast Coffee and Wine Bar here in Windsor, CO.
The main topic was the resurrection of the Friends of the Library Club. This club was on hiatus for a bit, but now is looking to re-form in order to primarily help the library with fundraising activities. Any and all are welcome to join. Just visit the library’s website and enter your email to be on the list. Volunteer-initiated programs such as maybe a gala dinner, art show, bake sale, etc were discussed.
The Colorado Author Series was a popular topic with three authors visiting this year, including Peter Heller and Sandra Dallas. This series is sponsored by an endowment with the idea thrown around of a possible pre-reception.
The Summer Adventure Program is revving up, which is a program to reward summer reading for kids and adults. Along with this is added activities for the kids during the summer.
Story time has instituted advanced tickets in order to keep the number of participants manageable. However, no one wants to discourage participation so the ticketing system is still in the pilot stages and is in review.
Pub trivia is huge and there are requests for more nights. This would require either a sponsorship or giving up another program in order to pay for staff’s time. This was under discussion.
Overall, a very encouraging and exciting hour. It’s awesome to see the heart Windsor has for others in the community and to be engaged in giving back. Exciting programs and events are in store for Windsor. Volunteers are always needed and you do make a difference. For all the details, visit the library’s website or in person today!
