On March 24, a notable member of the Norwin community moved beyond mortal life. Known as the goose who lingered on Colt Drive, the animal was hit by an unknown veichle. Found by a resident of North Huntingdon, the Norwin community was first notified of its passing via All About the Norwin Area Facebook page. Upset with the goose’s passing, some North Huntingdon residents created a memorial close to where he was commonly spotted.

“I had a deep emotional connection with the the goose,” said senior Elizabeth Long. “Every morning, like clockwork, they would be there stomping along on the road. They always brought a smile to my face and this will leave an everlasting effect on my life and the community.”

Although the goose ran under numerous aliases such as Gus, Max, Diane, Gary, Quackers, White Duck, Goot, and Gerald, this animal undoubtedly left an impact on the Norwin community. They will be remembered dearly.
