Over 150 cars were washed and over $1,500 was raised for the Douglas Warren Scholarship!

A big thank you to all the members of the community who stopped by, including our friends at the South Windsor Police Department and the Town of Manchester Fire Department! We hope to see you all next year!


Now that Summer is upon us, the weather is perfect for a relaxing evening outside while sitting around a campfire. It is also a great time to remind everyone of the town's ordinance regarding such fires.

Please review the ordinance by clicking the below link. Have fun, safely and responsibly!!

Regulations regarding open burning can be found in the Town of South Windsor ordinance at the bottom of this page. In general, small outdoor fires that do not exceed 3 feet in diameter and do not create a nuisance are allowed without a permit. This includes cooking fires, campfires, and commercially available outdoor fireplaces such as chimineas and patio hearths. Fires shall not be left unattended, shall not be too close to any structures, and sufficient water and tools to extinguish the fire must be readily available nearby.

Open burning of brush, rubbish, and other debris is not allowed without a specially obtained permit from the CT DEEP.
