A plaque on the gates of the reserve also pays tribute to L.W. Galvin M.L.A. and his wife for their generosity and assistance in the development of the reserve.
Mr. Percy Truscott, of California Gully, near Bendigo, died yesterday after a long illness. Mr. Truscott was a former mayor of Eaglehawk and was an active community worker. Truscott Reserve, which includes California Gully baths, was named in his honor, and his barber shop was a landmark from the goldmining days.
