Linking central Victoria via the old railway line
Sunday, 3rd January 2016 was another notable day for the O’Keefe Rail Trail and the Lions Club of Heathcote. This day saw signage, recognising the contribution that the Lions Club of Heathcote has made in providing a rail trail shelter in Herriot Street Heathcote, being put into place.
Immediate past President Daryl Dedman is to be congratulated, in helping to ‘steer’ the rail trail shelter project through the various stages of the journey during 2014-15. Sunday saw the new sign’s installation, lead by the current Lions President Greg Spiers with assistance from Lion Peter Baldwin and Lions Partner Ray Anderson. Of course this sign’s installation effort also had the oversight of ‘Site Foreman’ Lion Jeanette Dedman on the day!
The new sign has now ‘put the icing on the cake’ so to speak, an outcome that the club members can be rightly proud of. The club also thanks Ken Testa of Kidswood Country, who did the sign’s lettering, and Joe McMahon for the timber.
The Friends of the Bendigo-Kilmore Rail Trail are equally pleased to be a part of this combined community effort, providing member time and expertise in helping the Lions Club to achieve such an outcome for the rail trail users as well as for the Heathcote community.
