Windham – The Windham Historical Society begins its new year on Monday, January 17, at 7 p.m. in the Brick Chapel on North Main Street in Windham.
The Brick Chapel opens at 6:30 to all interested visitors for a meet and greet. The Society has increased its membership tremendously in 2010, and hopes to expand even more in the new year, which marks Windham Bicentennial.
At the November meeting, a large turnout heard sports historian George Belden discuss Basketball before Marty Hill, a salute to the great Windham teams of the 1940’s and 1950’s.
Among the attendees were members of the late 1950’s Bombers of Coach Dick Schlup, which averaged over 20 wins per season. From left to right, they are Tom Denvir, Ken Rowan, Jerry Tacy, Bill Barker, Bill Isler, and current Windham coach Marty Hill.
