Gang Plate Layers Cottage for Use by Small GroupsBeechworth Lions Club is spearheading the repair of the Gang Plate Layers Cottage (the last of its type in Australia) in Harper Avenue with the assistance of the Indigo Shire and the Beechworth Correctional Centre Community Work Teams. The Club gained a grant of $20,000 for Stage 1 which is now completed. A further grant application has been submitted for Stage 2 for the interior, electrics and plumbing and Stage 3 will be fit-out by the community and the garden by the Community Work Teams. It is expected that the cottage will become a much needed community hub for small groups who do not have a meeting place. It will also provide storage facilities for memorabilia.
Beechworth Lions Memorial Walk OpeningLions members, guests and families attended the opening of the scarlet oak walk at Lake Sambell. Two recycled plastic black seats were also placed at strategic and scenic spots overlooking the lake. One seat was donated to the project by the local Bendigo and Community Bank Those who made pledges had their names inscribed on plaques and these were placed on the granite rocks at each end of the walk. Rudy Kraus inserted our sponsorship plaques into the seats. Thank you Rudy, for your continued support. Those present viewed the Memorial plaques recognizing past Club Presidents, members - past and present - whose pledges made the Walk possible. A bbq concluded the event. Of late, the trees (donated by Tom and Erin Powell) have been staked, where necessary, to maintain a good growing habit and some are already showing their colour.
