Adult & Continuing Education
Members of the Windsor Adult Education New England Ukulele Ensemble Class, with special guest MC Mike Lawson and SnapBack, performed a Holiday Benefit Concert at Windsor High School on December 10. The Ukulele Ensemble Class, under the direction of Jim Lenn, met once a week for 10 weeks this fall at Windsor High School to play their ukuleles. Concert audience guests were respectfully asked to bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the Windsor Food and Fuel Bank. It was a fabulous evening of entertaining music and singing with over 100 guests in attendance, $66.18 in monetary donations, and more than 200 lbs. of food donated to our local food bank. Thank you to all who participated for your talents and generosity.
