We are Sonoma STRONG! Because of the Chico fires there were a couple of weeks in November that had lots of Windsor residents wearing their N95 face masks to protect themselves from the smoke. As much as we would have preferred to forget the horrific fires from 2017s, it is a reminder about how precious life is and the importance of continuing moving forward and continuing to enjoy life and having fun.

Windsor has lots of events and fun happenings to keep a smile on everyone’s face. Here are some of the exciting things happening in Windsor for December…

Grand opening of KS Tia Yuen:

There is a new restaurant on the Town Green, located on the corner of McClelland and Market Street, the name is KS Tian Yuen and it is Asian Cuisine. On Monday, December 10th, they will have their grand opening with a ribbon cutting with the  Windsor Chamber of Commerce. To help celebrate from 12-2 pm they will be having a special event and having $10 lunches. All the money will be donated to the  Windsor High School Vineyard Academy.  Come join in their celebration and support the WVA program!
