Greenwich Communities will host a ceremony dedicating the new community room at Armstrong Court to the late Winston A. Robinson, a former resident, civil rights, community, church leader, and an outstanding human being. The dedication will be in Greenwich on Saturday, September 9, at 10:00 a.m., as announced by Anthony L. Johnson, CEO and Executive Director of Greenwich Communities.
The Community Room will be dedicated to the Memory of Winston A. Robinson, who passed away on January 26 earlier this year. “We want to recognize Winston A. Robinson and his 35-year commitment to helping this community and the Town of Greenwich, which he loved dearly,” said Johnson. “Winston’s service and commitment to the Town of Greenwich, Town of Greenwich Boards, civic organizations, and his church are qualities that we all should strive to emulate,” continued Johnson.
Winston A. Robinson was a housing manager at the Greenwich Housing Authority, now known as Greenwich Communities. In addition, Winston also served as a member of the Greenwich Department of Human Services, where he chaired the Achievement Gap Task Force. This task force seeks to support children from low-income families in their first three years of life to help them avoid future academic struggles, which Winston believed in very strongly. Other organizations in Greenwich that benefited from Winston’s volunteerism include the American Red Cross Board, Barbara’s House (formerly CCI), the Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich, the Community Development Block Grant Advisory Committee, Greenwich Hospital, the Greenwich Scholarship Association, the Town of Greenwich Board of Parks and Recreation, the Transportation Association of Greenwich, the United Way of Greenwich and many others.
After Winston’s passing, Town of Greenwich First Selectman Fred Camillo posted his thoughts on social media, “One of the nicest men ever. A true gentleman, Winston will be remembered for his love of others, his hometown of Greenwich, and his life.”
The public is invited to attend this dedication. Caffè Bon will be providing light refreshments. For questions, please contact Maria Morris at email@example.com or (203) 869-1138, ext. 101.
