    Windsor is pleased to announce Dr. Johnson Hagood as its Official Commemorative Poster Artist for the 2022 Windsor Charity Polo Cup.

    An accomplished artist, Dr. Hagood paints with oils and acrylics in a vibrant color palette using both brush and palette knife. He is self-taught, having painted with oils since childhood. With a steady hand and artistic talent, it is no surprise that Dr. Hagood is also a highly skilled restorative and cosmetic dentist with a thriving practice in Vero Beach.

    Painting in a distinctive impressionistic style, Hagood’s subjects include serene natural landscapes, still life, to high energy works depicting polo ponies in action. His paintings have a sense of timelessness in nature, as if he has captured the very moment nature has reached the pinnacle of its beauty.

    Hagood says his style is influenced by some of the acclaimed impressionist artists such as Matisse, Barnard and Monet. Most recently, he has been inspired by the contemporary works of French artist Jean Claude Roy and Dutch artist Frits Van Eeden, implementing more abstract applications to some of his latest works. Dr. Hagood’s work can be found on display at the Artists Guild Gallery in Vero Beach’s Historic Downtown Arts District.

    “Over the last few years, I have become very interested in painting scenes from the thrilling sport of polo and particularly the Windsor Charity Polo Cup,” Dr. Hagood stated. “The featured painting was inspired by several of the photos television personality John Walsh – who has been involved in the event since its inception – provided me. I feel truly blessed to play a part in the 2022 Polo Cup.”

    Titled The Match, the 30” x 30” acrylic painting captures the excitement and intensity of the sport of polo. The piece will be auctioned off at the charity event luncheon, with silent bids beginning at the Players Cocktail Reception on Friday, February 18, 2022, the evening before the polo match.

    A native of North Carolina, Dr. Hagood earned a B.S. degree in Biology from East Carolina University and a Doctor of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) degree from the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry. His professional achievements are numerous, making him one of the highest credentialed dentists in the United States.

    Floridian private residential community Windsor, located on a lush barrier island between the Indian River and Atlantic Ocean and home to some of the nation’s finest coastal residences, is pleased to announce the upcoming release of a new photography book, “Beachside: Windsor Architecture & Design.”

A writer and editor who began her career at both Architectural Digest and ADPro, this is Keller’s first book and presents a wide array of Windsor homes, organized by room.

    The Windsor Charitable Foundation board is pleased to announce the return of PNC Bank as the presenting sponsor for the 2022 Windsor Charity Polo Cup. Additionally, the Ocean Research & Conservation Association (ORCA) and the Environmental Learning Center (ELC) have been selected as the event’s two benefitting charities. Net proceeds for the biennial polo event, taking place Feb. 19, 2022, over President’s Day weekend, will be donated equally to both charities in support of their respective causes.

    “Supporting the preservation efforts by ORCA, the nation’s first technology-based marine conservation organization, and ELC’s mission to educate, inspire and empower people to be active stewards of the environment, aligns closely with PNC’s national environmental and sustainability efforts,” said Cressman Bronson, PNC regional president of Southeast Florida. “We are proud of our continual involvement with Windsor Charity Polo Cup and its efforts to raise funds for such meaningful charities.”

    The Windsor Charity Polo Cup is recognized as the signature high-goal charity polo match of the Vero Beach season. The last event in 2020 featured an exciting roster of top-level international players including Nachi Du Plessis from South Africa and Justin Taylor from London, UK.

    The 2020 Charity Polo Cup raised $333,000 for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Indian River County, the Literacy Services of Indian River County, and the Humane Society of Vero Beach & Indian River County local community charities – the highest amount of charitable dollars in the event’s history.

    “The Foundation’s goal for the biennial polo event is to give back to our local community. For the 2022 event, we selected two environmentally focused organizations to support, which are doing exceptional work in the areas of protecting critical habitats, research and education,” said Betsy Hanley, president of Windsor and vice chair of the Foundation board.

    Both charities selected this year have several Windsor Members as supporters and donors. Event beneficiaries play an active role in the success of the event and serve on the event planning committee.

    “ORCA is incredibly grateful to be named a beneficiary of the 2022 Windsor Charity Polo Cup. This support comes at a critical time for our organization and for the Indian River Lagoon,” said Dr. Edie Widder, ORCA president, CEO and senior scientist.

    “All of us at the Environmental Learning Center are thrilled to have been chosen as a co-beneficiary of the Windsor Polo event this February,” added Barbara Schlitt Ford, the organization’s executive director. “Windsor is a premier, internationally known residential enclave and we are so proud to be working with these special neighbors. They embrace their role as stewards of this unique ecosystem. We look forward to an impactful and long-lasting partnership with this local treasure.”

    Galen passed away peacefully at home on April 12, 2021, at the age of 80, after a long illness faced with courage and dignity.

    Beloved husband to The Hon. Hilary Weston; dearest father to Galen G. (Alexandra) and Alannah (Alexander Cochrane); devoted grandfather to Maia, Lola, Graydon, and Griffin. Survived by his siblings, Grainger, Nancy Baron, Wendy Rebanks (Leslie), Gretchen Bauta (Humberto), Camilla Dalglish (Peter), their families and his stepmother Margaret. Predeceased by his parents Garfield and Reta Weston, his brother Garry Weston, and his sisters Miriam Burnett and Barbara Mitchell.

    Born at Marlow, Buckinghamshire, UK, on October 29, 1940, the youngest of nine children, Galen studied business administration at Huron University College at the University of Western Ontario. In 1961 he launched his career by acquiring and expanding supermarkets and department stores in Ireland. In 1972 he returned to Canada to take charge of Loblaw, a struggling chain of grocery stores that George Weston Limited had controlled since 1947. Over more than four decades of hard work and team effort, Galen led the transformation of Loblaw from near-bankruptcy to what is now Canada’s leading retailer, including the creation of President’s Choice, the launch of PC Financial, and the acquisition of Shoppers Drug Mart.

    Concurrently, Galen brought his vision, imagination, and energy to creating Selfridges Group, a collection of iconic department stores, through the acquisition of Brown Thomas and Arnotts in Ireland, Holt Renfrew and Ogilvy in Canada, Selfridges in the UK, and de Bijenkorf in the Netherlands.

    He had a keen eye for real estate, creating Canada’s leading real estate investment trust, Choice Properties, as well as transforming the Oxford Street neighbourhood surrounding Selfridges’s London store.

    Galen’s success in business was rooted in his values as a person. With a sense of duty to build upon the legacy of his father and grandfather as entrepreneurs and community leaders, he believed strongly that business was about more than the bottom line. The pleasure he took from getting to know individuals from all walks of life reflected his conviction that people are the foundation of any successful enterprise. And, with infectious optimism and insatiable curiosity, his greatest gift was his ability to inspire others to achieve more than they thought possible.

    Amid his endless enthusiasm for business, Galen always made time for his other passions. Among them, a lifelong commitment to philanthropy through the Weston Family Foundation, and the time spent with family and good friends who were so central to his life.

    He will be sorely missed by Hilary. Through 55 years of a deeply loving marriage, they worked as a team in the expansion of the luxury department stores and the development of Windsor, an acclaimed residential community in Florida. They were especially proud of her five years of public service as Ontario’s 26th lieutenant governor. But nothing gave them more gratification than their two children, both of whom have risen so commendably to the challenges Galen passed on to them after his retirement in 2016.

    The family would like to extend their thanks to Pavi Binning, to Dr. Zubina Mawji, Dr. Sandra Black and Dr. Dermot O’Flynn, to nurses Patriz Lopez and Louise Gregoire, to caregiver Sultanah Khan and to Marianne Surmann. They also wish to recognize the many other dedicated individuals who supported Galen at home.

    A celebration of Galen’s life will be held in Toronto at a later date.

    In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre Foundation, or a charity of your choice.
