In her History of Windham County, Ellen Larned describes the social life of Windham during the eighteenth century as “exceedingly hilarious and enjoyable… Good cheer abounded… Merry-makings of every description were frequent. The residents of Windham Green were especially noted for love of fun and frolic, bantering and jesting.” The Windham Free Library is thrilled to be able to continue this time-honored tradition with its annual Jazz in the Garden.
Jazz in the Garden is an annual fundraiser for the Windham Free Library that was begun in 2002. It is held in the garden of the historic Laura Huntington House just off the Windham Center green. Preparation for the fundraiser begins early every year as volunteers meet for monthly planning meetings. The event features live music, carefully prepared foods, wine, and a silent auction of goods and services donated by local residents and businesses.
Jazz in the Garden will return on September 11, 2022. Please stay tuned for more information.
