Windham – The Windham Historical Society heard presentations from their Scholarship winners, Caitlyn Isler (l.) and Julia Brookover (r.). Caitlyn presented a talk and artifacts from Richard Nixon’s visit to Windham in 1972, just before the news about Watergate broke in the national headlines. Julia gave a sociological  Powerpoint presentation about her family history, and how the Ravenna Arsenal facilitated people from other areas coming to the Windham area to meet and form families. The Historical Society scholarships are underwritten by the Stuart Higley Foundation, administered by descendants of one of Windham’s founding families.
