Winooski & The Buffalo Soldiers: A Celebration of Black History Month: SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 2 at 2:00 p.m. at the United Methodist Church of Winooski, 24 West Allen Street, Winooski VT. Join us in celebrating with music, song, and history the remarkable story of the heroic Buffalo Soldiers and their contributions to Winooski in honor of Black History Month. The United Methodist Church of Winooski was the home church for many of the Buffalo Soldiers, their wives and children during the time they were garrisoned at Fort Ethan Allen, from 1909-1913. Many of the soldiers decided to retire here rather than deploy again. We remember and honor their ties and contributions to the United States, the church and the community.
