Sponsored by:
Carmon Funeral Homes and the Carmon Family


The Farmington Valley Band was organized in 1944 by Fred Widen, a long-standing native of Collinsville. In a way, it was an extension of the earlier Collinsville Boys Band, in which Mr. Widen had been a tuba player. Fred Widen was the driving force behind the Canton Historical museum as well, with his extensive collection of Collins related artifacts. His original Sousaphone can be seen there today, along with a re-created bandstand from the old days, worth the trip to see it. In the 1944 band reorganization, Mr. Victor Viering was selected as the band s conductor. Mr. Viering had been a trombonist in the Collinsville Boys Band.

Although we are many, our goal is one: to raise a voice of witness to the Realm of God in our midst. A local highlight for us is our annual participation in Windsor's MLK celebrations.

The McMahon Family Choir - The McMahon family has been singing praise and worship music since Ray and Sally (Dad and Mom) met at the Hartt College of Music in West Hartford, CT, in the 1970s. Today they have 10 children, ranging in age from 14 - 30, who enjoy making a joyful noise together. For 22 years, Ray has served as pastor/principal of Praise, Power, & Prayer Temple & Christian School in Windsor.
