The WindsorEssex Community Foundation is celebrating 40 Years of Inspiring Philanthropy throughout 2023, with a broad range of community investments. This year, we are investing in community to create projects that will invest in lasting change, reflect who we are as the people of Windsor and Essex County, value our sense of place and culture, and honour both our local history and our future as it unfolds. We are privileged to be celebrating our 40th Anniversary with phenomenal community partners.
On November 23, 2023, the WindsorEssex Community Foundation, the Town of Amherstburg, and members of the community gathered to celebrate the unveiling of a new waterfront legacy project made possible through an investment from the WindsorEssex Community Foundation in celebration of their 40 Years of Inspiring Philanthropy.
The new “Hole in the Wall” Photo Frame is an inspiring new waterfront attraction for tourists and local residents to enjoy. The frame provides an opportunity for visitors to capture their experiences and the landmark scenery offered by Amherstburg’s beautiful waterfront, and serves as a new gateway to the community.
The Amherstburg “Hole in the Wall” Photo Frame legacy project was made possible through an initial investment from the WindsorEssex Community Foundation, with the generous support of the Town of Amherstburg, and Amico Infrastructures and its affiliate A-LINX Building Technologies. Amico and A-LINX oversaw design coordination, fabrication and site construction and contributed all labour and equipment resources to help bring this fantastic community legacy project to fruition, contributing greatly to this landmark attraction that will be enjoyed by residents and visitors to the Town of Amherstburg for generations.
“Absolutely thrilled to join the Windsor-Essex Community Foundation in celebrating 40 years of inspiring philanthropy!” Shares Amherstburg Mayor Michael Prue. “Together, we’re creating a lasting legacy with this “Hole in the Wall” photo op, celebrating our history and those who come to experience it. Windsor-Essex Community Foundation’s support fuels these transformative projects, making them a vital partner in shaping our shared future. We look forward to making a difference and touching countless lives together!”
The investment is one of several 40th Anniversary Community Legacy Projects being supported by the WECF as they celebrate 40 years of Community Supporting Community in 2023. The WECF is marking this milestone year throughout Windsor and Essex County by creating lasting legacies, working with local municipal and community partners to create projects that will invest in lasting change in Windsor and Essex County, value a sense of place and culture, and honour both local history and the future as it unfolds.
