Charlie Brown Theme Contest
Ends September 30th

Aug 30, 2018


 There are two new guys in Windsor. Their names are Mobile Charlie and Chuck and they are cute pop-up cutouts of Charlie Brown. Charlie Brown is coming to the Windsor Town Green to join RainJoe Snoopy! The Windsor Parks and Recreation Foundation (People4Parks) and Town of Windsor are inviting the community to help design a theme for a new 5-foot Charlie Brown statue to be professionally painted and installed on the Town Green.

The mobile boys will be found all over Windsor. Right now one is in the Starbucks on Old Redwood and the other can be found at the Sunday Windsor Certified Farmers Market. Future locations include the Windsor Library, theSanta Rosa Airport Club and Cravin’s Candy Emporium. If you would like to have Charlie or Chuck for a few days at your business location please contact me at

The full-size Charlie Brown statue is currently residing in a crate for safekeeping. After the theme selection is made we will search for an artist for painting and unveiling later this year. You will find theme contest applications on Charlie and Chuck’s neck or at and the submission date will be until September 30th.

Where on earth has RainJoe Snoopy been lately?

RainJoe Snoopy statue has lived on the corner of Market Street and McClelland Drive since 2008 and recently people have noticed he has been missing. Fear not, RainJoe will return later this year. He is safe; he is just having a “spa day” and a bit of a make over.

Because RainJoe has been working hard 24/7 for the last 10 years it was decided that he needed a bit of a facelift and touch up. He was donated by the Windsor Certified Farmers’ Market and Windsor residents and is a very much loved part of our Town Green.

Our beloved RainJoe Snoopy will be returned and joined by the new Charlie Brown statue on the Windsor Town Green.

Keep an eye out for them coming soon.

Summer celebration by the Windsor Garden Club

 To celebrate the end of summer the Windsor Garden Club had a luau in their Community Gardens. What a lovely find these gardens are. They are located just across from the Town of Windsor offices in a secluded and quiet area that is filled with peaceful benches, tables and chairs.

If you are not familiar with the Windsor Community Gardensthere are 72 raised bed boxes that are used for residents to grow herbs and vegetables. Several boxes are reserved for the Windsor Unified School District’s North County Consortium students and the Windsor Service Alliance Food Pantry. This community garden is healthy and abundant with an array of peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, birds and children’s laughter. Please come check it out.

This homegrown, grassroots organization welcomes all people who love to garden. The Windsor Garden Club has meetings every third Tuesday of the month at 6:30 pm (except for June and December) and cost is only $25 a year to join:

So this is what’s up in Windsor.

See you next month ~ Lorene & Gayle
