Memorial PathwayPrint Page Print this page

A walkway commemorates Lions Club members past and present, as well as many residents from throughout the district.  The walkway shows the history of Marulan and the surrounding district and begins with the logo of Lions International, followed by the charter members of the Lions Club of Marulan and District.

Pavers representing Lions Club members past and present, as well as many residents from throughout the district, have been placed in Meridian Park. The memorial pathway was officially unveiled and dedicated at a ceremony on Sunday September 19.

The idea for the establishment of the walkway began early last year. It was suggested at a Lions meeting as a memorial pathway but was extended to include anyone who would like to have a paver.

The walkway is still a work in progress, with plans to seal the pavers with a special clear sealer that will prevent stains and make them look good. The walkway shows the history of Marulan and the surrounding district and begins with the logo of Lions International, followed by the charter members of the Lions Club of Marulan and District. There are names from long ago and names of people who are new residents, as well as some local organisations, and there is still room for future expansion.

The Lions Club would like to thank everyone who participated in the project by ordering a paver and Goulburn Mulwaree Council for allowing the walkway to be added to Meridian Park. Special thanks to Brian Faulkner and his students from Goulburn TAFE, who laid the pavers. They worked under some very extreme weather conditions to complete the walkway.

Thanks also to Chris and Julie Grills of Marulan Rural Supplies for their assistance in storing the pavers and delivering them when needed, Shepherd’s Hill Nursery for their kind donation of sand and to all the Lions who assisted with organising, planning, designing and cleaning.
