The Friends of the Bendigo-Kilmore Rail Trail Inc. held its sixth AGM on 22 Sept 2015. The well attended meeting was amazed by guest speaker Linda Beilharz’s adventurers as a polar explorer, having successfully make four icecap journeys across the South Pole, North Pole, Greenland and Patagonia.

President Garry Long delivered his annual report, which reflected upon the journey and challenges that the group had been directly involved with over the past 5 years. Also mentioned was the 2015 highlight of the O’Keefe Rail Trail finally being continuous between Heathcote and Bendigo. Garry also thanked the involvement of individual members and the various Friends group’s Action teams, and looked forward to the group’s activities in 2015-16.
