WINCHESTER — Gordon Collingridge was a staple in Winchester and now his memory will live on for years to come.

Elva Collingridge, mother of Gordie, was on hand for the unveiling of her late son’s To The Top Canada Award, which she donated to the Township of North Dundas in August. The
snowshoe was put in a beautiful shadow box frame — courtesy local woodworker Dave McClenaghan — and a photo of Gordie receiving the award was added.

Elva says the display is “wonderful” and that she’s “never been so proud.”
