Our Annual Windemere Auction was a great success! Over $20,000 was raised in support of keeping our residents connected to our community and keeping our community connected to our residents. We cannot thank all of our supporters enough!

Windemere Recreation Department’s goal is to nurture a spirited and engaging life for all residents. Keeping residents connected to their community is an important part of what we do. Proceeds from this auction help provide residents with the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities both inside and outside of Windemere.
Our Artist: Eva Mae Magee
Eva Mae loves the recreational opportunities including the Art Program, Rising Tide Equine Therapy Program and adores the students from the Chilmark School’s Intergenerational Program. Visits from Felix Neck, mini horses, dogs, cats or even alpacas, are a real pleasure for her. Eva Mae enjoys getting dressed up for all kinds of parties and events. This spring, Eva Mae attended the High School’s Intergenerational Prom and danced the night away. She was considered to be the Belle of the Ball!
Our Artist: Helen Bouffard
Helen, a former bank teller, participates in many Windemere activities. She is a “buddy” to 2 students from the Chilmark School’s Intergenerational Program. Helen enjoys the music, socials, teas, exercise and dance programs. Her favorite though, hands down, is bingo. Helen knits blankets for our troops and is engaged in many community events. An avid reader, she awaits return visits from the West Tisbury Library to pick up the latest mystery. Helen is part of Nancy Cabot’s art group. A joyful lady, she is always ready to go to wherever, inside the facility or out in the community. Famous for saying, “What are we going to do next?” She is game for anything at anytime!
