Tree lighting thank you

On Dec. 2, the town of Windham celebrated its annual tree lighting festivities. It was an incredible event, thanks to the many people, businesses, staff and organizations who contributed. Santa arrived by fire truck, there was a bon fire, cookies and hot chocolate, music, activities and holiday fun.
