Honoring wounded veterans with Purple Heart Parking

Recently, Town Council member, Jarrod Maxfield, introduced his high school schoolmate, Anthony Webster, a Purple Heart recipient and representative for the Purple Heart Association at a Council Meeting.

Webster briefed the Council on a proposal to make Windham the first Purple Heart Town in the State of Maine. Moving forward, Council member, Rebecca Cummings, herself a veteran and member of the Legion Field-Allen Post 148, noted that the Windham Veterans Center did not have a Purple Heart, Wounded Veterans parking spot. 

Councilman Cummings stepped up and funded two Purple Heart parking spots at the Windham Veterans Center. Cummings noted, “Let’s make the town purple!” Councilman Cummings hopes that the Town and the Community will get involved and provide these spaces to our wounded veterans. If members of the business community are interested in helping to make the Town of Windham Purple, contact Anthony Webster at
