Meet Our Committee
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 2022 and ring in 2023 as the ball drops and the church bells chime and let's remember Debbie with much love and gratitude!

Ron Rambo was a very special Windsorite who was a dedicated volunteer for First Knight since it began. Ron developed the concept for the firepit for the bon fire, built it, brought the wood, and tended the fire as people stopped to warm themselves and make s’mores. The weather never deterred him and it was always a pleasure to see his smiling face as people walked through the Community House parking lot (Windsor Times Square). He made everyone feel welcome and enjoyed chatting with anyone who stopped by. Ron also helped by putting up signs and doing whatever odd jobs were needed to make First Knight possible. Ron volunteered for many organizations and helped many people during his lifetime. Sadly he passed away unexpectedly earlier this year, but his legacy lives on and all who knew him and those who have patronized First Knight over the years will feel the loss as this year draws to an end.
