Dear Editor - From Windham Public Safety Day Committee

Dear Editor,

The Windham Public Safety Day Committee would like to thank the Windham families, community leaders and other guests who came to Windham’s first-ever Public Safety Day last Saturday. The event was held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Public Safety Building on Gray Road. We had a great turnout out and the weather held - a nice bonus! 

At the AARP Maine shredding event, 4,500 pounds of sensitive documents were shredded and are now safely out of the hands of identity thieves. The Windham Food Pantry received many boxes of donations of food and supplies, plus the Windham Police Department collected unwanted medications for safe disposal. 

 The Windham Fire Department gave away smoke/carbon monoxide detectors and provided hands-on educational opportunities on fire safety for residents of all ages.

We owe special thanks to all the volunteers, public safety personnel, and the Windham Legislative Delegation for helping to educate local families on fire safety awareness, police community programs, driver safety and so much more. Their hard work resulted in a successful and enjoyable day on Saturday and we appreciate the collaborative efforts of everyone involved.
