Greenwich Communities (formerly Greenwich Housing Authority) will host a ceremony dedicating the new community room at Armstrong Court to the late Winston A. Robinson, a former resident, civil rights, community and church leader.
The dedication will be in Greenwich on Saturday, September 9, at 10:00am.
The event was announced Monday by Anthony Johnson, CEO and Executive Director of Greenwich Communities in a press release.
The Community Room will be dedicated to the Memory of Mr. Robinson, who passed away on January 26.
“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,” Johnson said in the release. “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.”
Winston A. Robinson was a housing manager at Greenwich Communities. In addition, he served as a member of the Greenwich Department of Human Services, where he chaired the Achievement Gap Task Force. The 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 Robinson believed in strongly.
Other organizations in Greenwich that benefited from Mr. Robinson’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, Greenwich Board of Parks & Recreation, the Transportation Association of Greenwich, the United Way of Greenwich and many others.
After Robinson’s passing, Town of Greenwich First Selectman Fred Camillo described him in a social media post as, “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 protected] or (203) 869-1138, ext. 101.
