Here at Windsor Patch we work hard to keep residents abreast of the latest happenings in town — an effort to fulfill our mission to make your life ridiculously easy by providing what you'd like to know about your town in one place.
As broad as that mission can be in practice, its roots are deeply set in one area: volunteerism.
In that vein, Windsor Patch has partnered with the Windsor Jaycees, a civic group that works tirelessly to leave no Windsor resident unaffected by its volunteer efforts, to celebrate those in town who put the well-being of others and the betterment of the Windsor community before their own.
In honor of the fortieth anniversary of the Windsor Jaycees' involvement in the Shad Derby Festival, Windsor Patch and The Jaycees' partnership will present a series aimed at shining a spotlight on those working to make a difference in Connecticut's first town; a series we're calling Patch Difference Makers.
"Too often we don't take the time to thank and appreciate the people, organizations & businesses that truly make Windsor a special town to visit, work & live," says Windsor Jaycees President John Jary.
"The Jaycees & the Patch hope to recognize as many worthy reciepients as we can with this series, and hope to inspire others to get involved in town . We hope that this series will showcase all the different ways people do make a difference in Windsor."
Those who have had a hand in making Windsor a better place are many. Accordingly, each week, we will feature a resident, business or civic organization that has dedicated time and effort to affecting positive change in town.
