Walkway through time


The Old Fella statue at the Waynesboro park now has a gateway from Liberty Street. "I hope this will serve as a lasting memorial," said Richard Daniel, owner of the late Old Fella and founder of the animal rescue group named in the dog's honor. "My dream is that for generations to come, people will know about Old Fella, the organization and how widespread its work has become." The walkway is lined with 70 bricks, including 45 engraved ones that serve as memorials to pets and loved ones. According the Daniels, orders for the bricks came from across the country, and five were even ordered from Canada. The project was completed through donations of supplies and labor from architect Mark Hancock of Manchester England, City of Waynesboro employees, McKinney Wholesale, Boral Brick Company, Madfactory and an Old Fella volunteer who asked to remain anonymous. "It turned out prettier than I ever dreamed," Daniels said. "We could not have done it without their help." The Old Fella statue at the Waynesboro park now has a gateway from Liberty Street.
