Windsor Goodfellow­s celebratin­g 100 years


The Windsor Goodfellow­s are celebratin­g 100 years of service to the community. The Goodfellow­s originally started in the Detroit area in 1905. Leo Page, one of the founders of the Windsor Goodfellow­s Club, had heard about an American man who sold newspapers to earn money for the poor.

Page decided to recruit 10 men who had been paperboys to sell newspapers to raise money for the disadvanta­ged people in Windsor.
