Jaguar Elite Athlete Program Donates to WHS Athletic Dept.


by Chris White The Jaguar Elite Athlete Development Program recently donated over $800 to the Windham High School Athletic Department. This was a substantial percentage of the profits generated from this summer’s strength and conditioning program at Windham High School. The eight-week program was directed by


Brian Fillion, a human performance teacher at Windham High. Fillion, who also works as a strength and conditioning instructor at Next Level Performance Training Center in Manchester, developed the program with co-workers Joil Bergeron and Helen Williams. They decided to offer the program at Windham High for the first time this summer and tailored it to meet the needs of the athletes who participated. “What makes the program successful is that it’s not just weight lifting,” Fillion said. “It takes into consideration all components of fitness.” Fillion said he plans that the program will be held each summer. This past summer, 14 Windham student-athletes benefited from the new program that gave them the opportunity to improve their athletic performance. “My hope is to see it grow every year,” Fillion


said. “I also hope it will help make our athletic teams successful here.”

Great Service at “YOUR” Convenience, Not Ours! SURCHARGES NO FUEL


submitted by Ruth Coole The Windham Woman’s Club held its first meeting in November 1911. One hundred years later the organization is still going strong. Julia Baker was the first president of the Windham Woman’s Club first meeting, there were eight women at this meeting, Gertrude Hall, Ethel Low, Mrs. J. Arthur Nesmith, Margaret Clarke, Mary Butterfield, Bessie Emerson, and Florence Garland. Meetings were held at the women’s homes. The following year, 1912, the club federated into the State Chapter and now boasted a total membership of thirteen. Through the years the members grew. 1913 brought war in Europe, and the United States entered this war 1914. The women volunteered their services on the home front, making bandages to be shipped to the “front.” By 1941, there were 60 members, besides tending to chores and raising children, the woman’s club sent money to the Crippled Children’s’ Fund, the Cancer Fund, Christmas Seals and raised a Scholarship Fund. Through the 1960s and into 1970s the help continued and money raised was spent on useful community efforts. Many community projects were taken on by the Windham Woman’s Club: first fire engine, school bussing, school dental programs, Scholarship Aid, Town Hall’s new flag pole, Senior Citizens group, Candidates Night, Girl Scout sponsored troops and in January 1978, the largest project undertaken was the “Jaws of Life,” woman’s club went to all organizations and groups to raise
