FTDT News: This Week in Windsor
If you were at our Farmers' Market last week then you experienced the palpable sense of camaraderie of caring people working together under adversity - in this case, a torrential downpour and thunderstorms. Thanks, market vendors, customers and Officer Perez for helping each other as we had to dismantle in record time!

Heritage Bricks

Heritage Bricks

Heritage Bricks make beloved and appreciated gifts. First Town Downtown offers engraved bricks as a unique way to memorialize loved ones, commemorate special events, birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, births, recognize civic groups, youth athletic teams, businesses, and volunteers. Honor someone special, all on a brick to be installed in the Town Green patio at Central Street.

The next Heritage Brick Installation will be Spring 2021, with special thanks to Marty McMahon of Edward Jones, who has sponsored our Heritage Brick program for Fall 2020 and Spring 2021!

Visit the heritage bricks already in place and you will be sure to recognize special Windsor people and organizations!

First Town Downtown installs bricks with a special ceremony every Spring and Fall. The last day to order a brick for the Spring installation is March 31, 2021. When purchasing a brick, you can customize up to 3 lines of 20 characters each for your special message. Select symbols are also available. The cost of a heritage brick is $50. Be sure to order yours today!
