Hour a Day Study Club: Founded in Windsor in 1934, The Hour-A-Day Study Club is a group of Underground Railroad descendants who actively participate in activities that improve the life of members of the community. The club began with a $15.00 scholarship award. Today they are able to give a $1500.00 scholarship award and bursaries of $500.00 each, as a minimum. The recipients are decedents of the Underground Railroad and are graduates from vocational and collegiate secondary schools who are going on to obtain higher education in Colleges and Universities. The Hour a Day Study Club also raised funds to hire a lawyer to represent a local man, Howard Berry Jr., who accused the Windsor Police of brutality.
