2018 WINDHAM SUMMERFEST - Even with a little rain, Windham knows how to have fun

Deb Matthews and Robin Mullins, co-chairs of the 2018 Windham Summerfest were very pleased with this year’s event. “The day was a complete success,” stated Mullins. “The Toby Pennels Memorial 5k, the Duane Clark Memorial Car Show and the parade all took place with lots of people in attendance. The crowd from the parade made their way to the event enjoying music, food, helicopter rides, the inflatable park and tons of interaction with local vendors and businesses. The afternoon rain could have ruined the day, but not in Windham! The non-profit food vendors stayed open, the bands kept playing and the fireworks went off as scheduled at 9:35pm. The Summerfest Committee is so thankful for the many people involved in making the day a huge success. Thank you all for helping us “Bring Unity to Our Community”!

Gary Plummer, of the parade committee, congratulated Summerfest Committee for a job well done. “They did an excellent job. Everyone was helpful and knowledgeable and answered questions cheerfully. The Summerfest Committee met with us on two occasions to be sure that we all worked well together. It was also a great idea to have Recreation Director, Linda Brooks involved. Linda and the entire committee really made sure that we were an integral part of Windham Summerfest.”

“Seeing the crowd that came back for the fireworks even though the rain kept trying to ‘make a comeback’ was really heartwarming and shows that Windham people like to have fun,” Brooks said.
