  • Just a quick note to commend you and your team for the noticeable difference in FTDT's presence in the Windsor community. Where in the past I would see FTDT news or activity notices periodically, now I see something FTDT related on almost a daily basis. Whether it is via a Facebook posting, press release, or email, I am well informed about and more aware of the wide variety of initiatives that FTDT supports.

    Most recently I saw no fewer than 9 postings acknowledging the many organizations and businesses that contributed to Nightmare on Broad Street. Such public recognition will likely prompt all of them to participate next year and it was fun to see so many pictures of families in costume, enjoying a safe Halloween.

    Please know that your efforts have raised FTDT's profile in Windsor significantly and are certainly working to "position and promote Windsor Center as a premier New England town center." Congratulations on a job well done!

  • I just wanted to send you a quick note on how great the Taste of Windsor was this year.

    As always, the food was awesome! Always new and delicious food and like normal I was stuffed when I left.
    I liked the way they changed the raffle this year, I thought it worked very well.
    Speeches were just the right length and the music is always good.

    Let Ashley and the rest of the team know they did a great job!!

  • Just wanted to say 'thank you' for the successful promotion of the sidewalk sale today - we had three groups of locals visit because they had come to the Center for the sale. One family even walked here!

  • Just an email to say how lovely downtown Windsor looks with all the white lights, especially on the lamp posts along the Green in front of Town Hall. I was driving south on Palisado Avenue, & stopped at the light where it joins Broad Street. As I gazed down the street toward the Green, all the lamp posts lined up, enhanced by their tiny white lights...quite an entrancing scene. Thanks for making this treat possible.

  • I just wanted to write and thank you for the wonderful "Nightmare on Broad Street" event. My family lives in Hartford, in an apartment building that doesn't have trick-or-treating, so we wanted to find a place to take our three-year-old son for a Halloween outing. We drove to Windsor and were so impressed! Even though there were hundreds of families milling around, it was so well-organized that it didn't seem crowded. All of the businesses were so friendly and enthusiastic. We rode the horse-drawn carriage, which thrilled my son.

    The event really made our Halloween!
