Gordon and Alma Hughes were well-known in the community for their dancing prowess and many other attributes.
Gordon died in 2019 and Hughes in 2017. Their memories will now live on with a bench dedicated in their honour in the garden of the Chemainus United Church.
Both were active in the United Church and their outstanding dancing was frequently showcased at the Chemainus 55+ Activity Centre. Gordon was a Second World War veteran and carried the Canadian flag on many Remembrance Days.
The bench was a gift from the church, the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 191 and their many friends in Chemainus.
