Leishman Pottery/Christie’s Clothing

These beautiful pieces from Leishman Pottery are available now at Christie's Clothing for Men, Women & Children. They are a fine collaboration of talents. Leishmans produced the pieces using the design from Collingwood Web Design and Loose Goose Canada and Christie's co-ordinated the effort. Thanks to all involved. The NLPS will receive $$ from each sale.

In Memory of Dick Pratt

Pat Anstett
November 9, 2017
The Board of Directors of the Nottawasaga Lighthouse Preservation Society (NLPS) were deeply saddened to learn of the recent passing of Collingwood resident Richard (Dick) Pratt. Mr Pratt was an avid supporter of the efforts of the NLPS to save and restore the Nottawasaga Lighthouse, often pitching in to help with NLPS fundraising efforts at events around Town and in offering suggestions (some quite witty) as to how to advance the project further. The NLPS Board wishes to extend our deepest condolences to Dick’s family and further, we wish to thank them for their kind request that donations be made in Dick’s name in support of the Nottawasaga Lighthouse Preservation Society. Donations made in Dick’s name will be added to the NLPS “Buy A Block” capital campaign which will forever recognize Dick’s support and enthusiasm in saving the light.
