Our next Dump Day is Saturday October 20th 9am to noon. The rules will be basically the same as in the past (Windsor residents only, proof of residency will be required) but as a heads up we will be rejecting commercial loads, and construction loads. If you have done a small remodel project and have a normal pick-up bed of material that’s ok but a big trailer full of debris will be rejected. Please contract with a hauler for your larger projects. We do intend for this to be an ongoing service, but it will be limited to Windsor residents looking to get rid of reasonable amounts of material from cleaning out garages, basements, small projects, etc. The following is a guide to what is accepted.
The 5th Annual Autumn Moon Festival will be held October 6, 2018 from 4-9pm on Main Street.

new this year, The Discovery Wildlife Center will be presenting an educational program featuring a meet and greet with some special animals, www.weecocenter.com.
Come play in the kids zone, get your face painted or just enjoy some festival foods while listening to great music. We’ll end the night with a fireworks display by Atlas Fireworks!

Late last week the Town received a notice from the Vermont Board of Libraries that they would be considering, at their July 17th meeting, a petitioned request to change the name of Mt. Ascutney to Kaskadenak. (who knew the Board of Libraries handled such things?) The Selectboards of Windsor, West Windsor and Ascutney will all be discussing the matter at their next respective meetings. For Windsor that is this Tuesday. If you would like to know more about the topic and express your opinion, you can find the information we received on the Town website here. You can take a once question survey on the topic here
