Don Graham played a key part in resurrecting the hiking trails that are now owned by South Nation Conservation (SNC) and referred to as Two Creeks Trail.
At the November 15th South Dundas council meeting, Mayor Steven Byvelds said, “I think it would certainly be fitting if Don’s name be named on one of the trails.”
Byvelds had already approached Graham on the subject and reported that “he said he’d be honoured with that recognition.”
The mayor also “talked with Josée Brizard (Director of Conservation Programs at SNC) and she thought that would be a great thing to do.”
He told council that he was looking for their approval to pursue the request with SNC.
Deputy-Mayor Jim Locke saw the request as “very fitting” and later referred to Graham as a “very very dedicated man.”
Councillor Jim Graham agreed adding, “over the years Don’s done a lot for the community.”
Byvelds said, “I’d like to call it the Don Graham Trail.”
He pointed out that SNC has a trail in Russel named after James Reid so, “we’re not setting a precedent. It’s been done in the past.”
