A WALKING TRAIL PARTNERSHIP
Bill and Lenore Malin are committed
to fitness through a different lens—es-
tablishing a roadside trails program at
Keowee Key. The two ran a commercial
building company together until 2005.
“We did a lot of embassy work, a lot of
restaurant work, just a very varied construction enter-
prise. Lenore handled the administrative piece and the
o;ce, I handled the rest of the ballgame. We worked as
a team,” Bill says.
For almost five years, the Malins pushed to get the
ROADS and Southside Walking Trail Project program
o; the ground. When financial support came to fruition, the two got to work as co-chairs, along with a
“The community response to the walking trails has
been really positive,” Bill says, adding that older residents
in particular have benefited from the trails’ accessibility.
“The use of the trail is far in excess of what we expected.
There are a lot of dog walkers; it’s really crowded.”
In addition to their involvement with the roadside
trails program, Bill and Lenore have hobbies of their
own. “When I came down here, Bill bought lessons with
a local potter for me as a Christmas gift. Now I have my
own studio with a kiln and spray set-up for glazing. We
do one or two sales a year within Keowee Key. I do the
pottery, and Bill makes beautiful wooden trays,” Lenore
says. “We love this community, and we’re very happy to
be able to contribute something lasting to it. It raises our
spirits and makes us smile every time we go out and see
someone on the trail.”
