The recordings will be shared via the City of Windsor’s Facebook page and Mayor Dilkens’ Facebook page.

Veterans Banner Project: Everyone is encouraged to visit the Olde Riverside section of Wyandotte Street where street banners are hanging until November 2023 showing the names, dates, and other commemorative information about some of the incredible veterans with connections to our community. This project, installed and unveiled in September of this year, is led by Marty Flanagan and is a partnership between the Olde Riverside Town Centre BIA, the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 255, and ENWIN. These banners help to show our support and respect for our veterans and their loved ones.
