Windham Arts is excited to announce that it will officially move its offices to the Eastern CT Veterans Community Center in Tyler Square. ''We are so excited. The Community Center is so beautiful and offers so many opportunities to the artists, cultural organizations and museums in the region,'' says Bev York, Program Director. Windham Arts is a regional arts and culture organization that works to assist and promote the arts, culture, history and tourism in the Northeast corner of CT. We have been a regional collaborator since 2000 and serve as the fiscal agent for many local artists and emerging non-profits. We invite anyone from the community to visit and get a tour of our new home. If you are an artist or an art/culture organization please stop by and see all the meeting spaces and classrooms. If you are interested in forming an ''art'' group or are a new start up, please contact us to discuss the best ways to partner and grow.
Do you favor yourself an expert on Scotch or Whiskey? Do you love trying new flavors? Are you interested in how whiskey is made, how it is tasted and how it should be served? Or do you just like a fun night out with your friends? Maybe you would like to try different flavors to become a new fan of these exquisite spirits. Join us for a fun evening of whiskey and scotch tastings. We will pair a number of quality spirits with delicious locally made food items so you can experience a FLAVOR EXTRAVAGANZA! Every guest will leave with a special gift from us as well as a better understanding of this ''gentleman's beverage'' and its historical importance to our culture. We will also have some very interesting whiskey themed door prizes. Please join us and support the programs offered by the Eastern CT Veterans Community Center. All funds raised for the event will be charitable donations. The Eastern CT Veterans Community Center is a safe and beautiful place that provides a place for veterans and their families, as well as others in our community, to meet, learn and grow. Specific programs that will be supported from this event include our: ''CNA Boot Camp''- a workforce training program for Certified Nursing Assistants ''RadKidz''- a safety, anti-bullying and self-esteem building program for kids ''Artreach''- a program to provide creative instruction to kids who are not exposed to art or music lessons ''Start Your Own Business''- a mentoring program designed to help people with employment issues start their own business and support their families ''Civic Leadership''- a program to encourage women and minorities to get involved in leadership roles in their communities
