Windmill Day, July 21, 2018

Windmill Day 2018 was a wonderful success.

It’s difficult to thank all, here are a few, Bill Schaal for the Little Rhody Model As, Ann Zartler for the children’s drawing circle, Mary Heath for the food truck Championship Melt, Land Hay for the  jonny cakes, Bill Salmon for the band Pottle’s Possum Hunters, Marcia Lindsay at the meetinghouse, and Linda Warner and Linnea Petersen for the water and cookies.

Special thanks to Joe and Jessie Dutra for once again letting us park in their field, to RITBA for the grant that made much of this possible, and to the powers that be for one of the most beautiful days of the summer.

Here are videos of 2018 Windmill Day!
