About the East Windsor Veterans Commission

What We Do

This year, the Veterans Commission sponsored our 16th annual Veterans Day road race with over 300 runners. This event is our major fundraiser. These funds are used to support our other activities which include hosting Memorial Day ceremonies on the town green and placement of American flags on all veterans graves and utility poles along the main streets of Warehouse Point and Broad Brook. Additionally, the commission presented two $750.00 scholarships to deserving students and financially assisted a veteran and commission member who required home modifications to accommodate his handicap after a leg amputation. Each December, the commission participates in the national Wreaths across America program at the veterans cemetery in Windsorville. We are moving forward on a project to enhance monuments and improve landscaping at the town green. We desperately need donations for this project as it is expected to cost more than $60,000.00. Donor forms and engraved paver order forms are available at town hall and online. The commission meets on the first Thursday of each month at 7PM at town hall.
