Sandstone block unveiled at Anderson Park

Not even a heavy shower of rain on Saturday morning for the unveiling of the sandstone block in Anderson Memorial Park, Woy Woy.

"It was certainly heart-warming to see four generations of the Anderson family in attendance to pay tribute to Bill Anderson, after whom the park was named," said Woy Woy Rotary club president Ms Julie Jones.

"With a wary eye on the weather, the Rotary tent was put up and chairs set out.

"The royal blue cloth was draped over the sandstone, ready for the big reveal and as Rotarians and Anderson family arrived, programs were handed out and introductions were made.

"We were pleased to be able to welcome Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch, and Mr John Sharpe, one of the original Rotarians when the park was dedicated.

"Also present was Woy Woy lawyer Mr Paul Tonkin, whose father Mr Phil Tonkin was in Woy Woy Rotary when the park when the park was dedicated.

"Paul can remember helping at a very young age to paint some of the woodwork."

Rotarian Mr Don Tee was the Master of Ceremonies for the ceremony and did the Acknowledgement to Country and welcome to the guests.

"Mr Bob Anderson gave history of Anderson Memorial Park and paid a lovely tribute to his father Bill after whom the park was named.

"It was then that the heavens opened."

Ms Jones gave a brief address and presented Mr Anderson with a memento of the day.

"Mr Tee gave us some insight into the history behind the Rotary involvement in the park since the original fountain leading to the placement of the sandstone.

"The sun reappeared just in time to unveil the new block, with the etched Rotary wheel and the original dedication plaque in place."
