Town Clerk’s Office Annual Marriage License Tradition Continues
The Windsor Town Clerk’s office is offering free marriage licenses on Monday, February 14th in honor of Valentine’s Day for any couple wanting to get married in Windsor within the next 65 days. This is an annual tradition, which began in 1962 by Town Clerk, George Tudan.  To obtain a free marriage license, couples are required to make an appointment with the Town Clerk’s office. Both parties must be present for the appointment and need to bring a photo identification. In addition, each couple will be eligible to win a beautiful gift basket filled with assorted gift items, which have been donated by our generous local Windsor merchants.

American Rescue Fund Branding
Enita Jubrey and Patrick Silver from the Information Services division developed a branding and community awareness program related to the American Rescue Funds. The goal of the program is to ensure Windsor residents are aware of the projects, programs and services funded through the American Rescue Funds. Intended outcomes include helping the community celebrate the opportunity to utilize $8.5 million to improve our community over the next several years; create a branding initiative to use with all American Rescue funded activities including print, web and social media; and to provide town departments with a tool kit that includes graphics, recommended text, and implementation instructions.
