Friends of Main Street date changes


WINSTED — The nonprofit, business-friendly Friends of Main Street organization has postponed its annual meeting for a second time after realizing the event conflicted with Winsted’s annual town budget meeting.

Originally scheduled for June 16 and postponed to June 23, the meeting has been finally set for Wednesday, July 9.

The venue for the meeting has also changed. Originally set to take place at the Gilson Cafe and Cinema, the party will happen at Northwest Community Bank, 68 Main St.

Friends of Main Street Executive Director Helen Ruwet Bunnell said Wednesday that the organization did not want to disrupt attendance at the budget meeting Monday, June 23, at 7 p.m. at The Gilbert School, since many residents look forward to participating in the budget process.

The July 9 Friends of Main Street meeting will be more of a celebratory affair, with food, wine and beer, awards for local volunteers and recognition of achievements in the business community. The date also marks the beginning of Winsted’s Summer Concert Series in East End Park, which is sponsored in part by Friends of Main Street.

"We would like people to join us at 5:30 for refreshments and awards and then we’d like everyone to join us at the concert," Bunnell said. The concert will feature the Treetop Orchestra, a Torrington-area classic rock band featuring former Blue Oyster Cult guitarist Joe Bouchard.

Anyone interested in joining Friends of Main Street is encouraged to attend the July 9 festivities. For more information, call 860-738-3351.
