WINCHESTER — D’s Collision Centre (CSN Collision Centres) celebrated their 30th year in business on Sat., July 14, in style at their Dawley Drive location. There were plenty of things to do and see as the Highway 43 Car Club was on site showing antique cars from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s along with recent muscle cars.

There were bouncy castles for the kids to play on and the event was broadcasted on the Kemptville radio station Juice 97.5 FM and MYKEMPTVILLELIVE.com. There was also face painting for the young and the young at heart.

The party was catered by Marg Loughlin of Loughlin Catering in Hallville which featured pulled pork or beef on a bun…or both, salads and beans alongs with pop and water.

Approximately 250 patrons showed up for the event which ran from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

According to Denis Carkner, “It doesn’t seem like 30 years but it is definitely time for me to retire!” he said with a laugh.
