I have been a proud member of the FLOW family since 2018 following a relocation to Windham from Utah.  I am married with two school-aged children: Abby and JP.  I am a Spanish teacher and an award-winning professional balloon artist.  Many of the local children and their families know me as, ¨the balloon lady.¨  I joined FLOW to meet new people and to satisfy my desire to volunteer.  Being a member of the FLOW family has been a very rewarding experience and I am grateful to be a part of such a diverse team of individuals working together toward a common goal: to support the Nesmith library.


I have lived in Windham for about 5 years now with my wife and daughter. I try to help out where I can and always look forward to our annual Strawberry Festival. During the day, I work from home as a software engineer and play volleyball in the evenings. In case anyone asks, in my photo I'm holding an iguana named Elvis.

Anne Hardt


Ten years ago, I moved to Windham from Haverhill, MA where I raised three boys and have a grandson. As an avid reader and educator, one of the first things I did was get a Nesmith library card. After reading a F.L.O.W. brochure, I knew I wanted to volunteer to contribute to the community.  However, since I was a teacher and union president, I had little time available until I retired in 2018 after teaching for 31 years.  A Windy Indy article advertised for a secretary and that’s when I enthusiastically joined F.L.O.W. I am blessed and fortunate to be a part of the Nesmith family and to be able to contribute to the Town of Windham community.
