As a result, the Many Friends Parklet will be closed, while Wall St. between Cleveland and Court streets will be closed as well.

“There’s a lot of buzz. We think it’s going to be a good event,” said Jennifer Wilson, who represented Main Street Winchester at the meeting. “We didn’t want all the cars in one place. We’re trying to break it up so that people can move around.”


The George Rogers Clark High School Class of 1982 will be celebrating its 40-year reunion on Saturday, October 22 from 6 p.m. to midnight.

For the event, Patti Columbia and Teresa Hodgkin requested to have Depot St. closed.

Their request was granted but the board is  looking to clarify whether or not the Winchester-Clark CountyFarmer’s Market pavilion will be closed as well.
