Don Rich – Life in North Windham in the 30’s, 40’s & 50’s

  • Windham Historical Society 234 Windham Center Road Windham, ME, 04062 United States (map)

Lifetime Windham resident and Historical Society member Don Rich will talk about his memories of growing up in Windham. Don will reminisce about Windham during the 1930's, 40's and 50's. He’ll talk about the British pilot training plane that crashed by the head gates one winter day. He’ll also reflect on his early oil business days and his first truck (which has a history all its own). This is a special opportunity to learn about Windham in the mid-twentieth century as remembered by a real fixture of the Windham community.
