The Mayor’s New Year’s Levee was a great opportunity for community members, Town Council and guests to exchange greetings, welcome in the New Year and take the time to honour seven community members who have made outstanding volunteer contributions to improve social, cultural and or recreational conditions in the Town of Collingwood. Awarded the Order of Collingwood this year were Shashi and Eswar Prasad, Ron MacRae, Barbara Sharp, David Saunders, and Larry Hogarth. Honoured with the Companion to the Order of Collingwood was Marilyn King-Lawrence. Congratulations to all and thank you from a grateful community! Photos/Story: Dave West Photography.
