Internet Safety Parent Workshop

The Windsor Locks Youth Services Bureau and Windsor Locks Public Schools are hosting a very important presentation that every parent, grandparent, and caregiver should know: INTERNET SAFETY.  Did you know that the internet, although may be fun and informative, is also filled with serious danger? According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, about 95% of children between the ages of 12 and 17 are online ... this is a lot of youngsters! The internet has drastically changed the way that children interact with the world. They have access to in-depth knowledge, tools to express their creativity, and ways to interact with people from all over. Popular apps like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat are all perused every single day by professional hackers who are looking for something or someone to exploit. Children can easily be in harm’s way by simply accepting an unknown or unfamiliar friend request.

 Join us in our fight to keep our children safe by coming to the Windsor Locks Senior Center, 41 Oak Street on Wednesday, October 7th, 2015. Bring your family for a free Italian pasta dinner from 5:00pm-6:00pm.  Enjoy free child care while you watch presenter Scott Driscoll of Internet Safety Concepts from 6:00pm-7:30pm. Walk-ins are always welcome, but RSVP is appreciated.  All town residents are invited.

Message from Steven N. Wawruck, Jr., First Selectman

steve-wawruckThe Referendum for the two bonding projects:  $375,000.00 for ADA Improvements at the Windsor Locks High School, and $1,150,000.00 for Infrastruction Improvements to Roberts, Steven, John, Highland & Wicklow Streets, Marshall Road, Arlington Road and Helena Lane, passed by a vote of 90 - 35 for the ADA Improvements, and 103 - 23 for the road projects.

The construction of bus shelters in Windsor Locks is underway.  The first shelter to be constructed is on Main Street; the previous shelter has been taken down and a new pad and shelter will be erected. There are four shelters going up on Route 75 at various locations and one on Schoephoester Road. 

The milling and repaving of Reed Avenue is underway.  The first course of pavement has been completed and the next phase is to reposition the storm drains to proper height and to install the curbing.  The final course should be put in place later this summer. Sidewalks along this roadway will be replaced with concrete walkways.

The Train Station Restoration Committee has been meeting on a regular basis on the first Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at Town Hall.  Any interested people are invited to atend and become part of the effort to revitalize and restore this building.  The first phase of work to get started is to replace and repair the bricks on the exterior of the building.  Fundraising for the project is well underway and a dedicated fund has been established to accept donations in the Finance Department at Town Hall.  The Class of 1963 made a donation of $1,200.00 and has challenged other graduating classes to meet or exceed their donation.

With Summer upon us, schools will be closed and our children will be out and about throughout town. Please be extra careful driving through town and obey the posted speed limits and stop signs. Have a safe and happy Summer.
