Thanks for successful garden tour
This year’s Kiwanis Landscape and Garden Tour was a wonderful success in spite of the hailstorm Windsor endured. We really appreciate all of the hard work the homeowners did through the summer first to present a beautiful landscape, and then to repeat all those hours cleaning up after the storm.
Those attending the tour expressed their appreciation for the information that was provided by the Master Gardeners and enjoyed being able to see the beautiful landscapes and talk with homeowners and Master Gardeners. Many thanks to the homeowners, the Master Gardeners, Fort Collins Nursery for loaning many, many plants to fill in where hail had done some of its worst damage, and everyone who supported us in one way or another helping us turn lemons into lemonade!
Money raised from this event will go to benefiting the youth in Windsor through high school scholarships, the Windsor robotics teams, and other youth-oriented programs.
Please join us anytime. Windsor Kiwanis Club meets at the Egg and I on the first Wednesday of each month at noon and on the third Wednesday at 6:30 a.m.
We are now looking for gardens in Windsor for next year’s tour, as well as homes for our popular Holiday Home Tour on Dec. 8. Please let us know if you know of any good prospects. Contact Audrey Rutz at (970) 686-2466 or Liz Meyer at (970) 686-9594.

Mayor lauds Windsor for bike race
I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all those who made the USA Pro Challenge a success in northern Colorado and specifically Windsor. Although Windsor was one part of one stage, as an international event the preparations and coordination required significant effort. This was a community oriented event that also afforded many opportunities for the community to serve. Windsor residents showed support at both levels.
Volunteers came from each community, and Windsor volunteers often accepted assignments outside our town as well as close to home. Thank you to those individuals who accepted the challenges of course marshals, start village ambassadors and other specific assignments.
I would also like to thank those groups that served as volunteers at the event, Kodak, Windsor Severance Fire Rescue and the Weld County Explorers. Whether your assignment was keeping intersections closed, providing safety or rallying the crowds, your participation was essential.
I also extend thanks to the Town of Windsor employees for their dedication and commitment. Members of the police department, public works department, Parks, Recreation and Culture department and administrative staff spent countless hours preparing and assuring a safe, fun, family-oriented event that was very unique.
Along with the Windsor Town Board, I want to express our appreciation for the community’s efforts. Thank you for helping to host another successful community event in Windsor.
