Meet Our Committee

Debbie Menta

Chairperson Emeritus!

Rest in Heavenly Peace, Debbie.

First Night - Windsor, NY was a dream for Debbie Menta, a local resident who, while raising her grandson, felt that a local, family-oriented event for New Year's Eve was needed.  Since the Binghamton First Night ceased a few years ago, there was no place for families to celebrate the coming New Year.  In 2012 we held the inaugural and very successful First Knight for Windsor, NY and the fulfillment of Debbie's dream.  Debbie passed away October 2018 after a long battle with cancer.  Please join us to celebrate the last night of 2019 and ring in 2020 as the ball drops and the church bells chime and let's remember Debbie with Thanksgiving!
