The Dungog Show Committee has joined forces with Dungog Regional Tourism and the Dungog Men's Shed to honour an Olympian from Dungog.
Kevin Bacon OAM was a showjumper from Dungog who was born in March, 1932 and died in March, 2020.
Mr Bacon competed in three Olympics; Tokyo in 1964 riding Ocean Foam, Mexico City in 1968 when he was farewelled from Dungog RSL, and the 1976 summer games in Montreal, Canada.
A new bar at the Dungog Showground has immortalised the memory of Mr Bacon with a large wooden plaque made by Dungog Men's Shed and an information spread on the Olympian.
The opening of the Kevin Bacon Bar at the Dungog Showground on Saturday, December 2, drew 40 people.
The commemorative plaque was unveiled by Mr Bacon's two daughters, Julie and Vicky.
"It was lovely. It was good that some of the family was able to attend, it was nice to have them unveil the new bar," Dungog Show Committee president Jeanie Briggs-Seers said.
After he died in 2020, Ms Briggs-Seers said the committee wanted to memorialise his achievements.
"We thought it would be nice to do some kind of memorial," she said.
"So they thought it would be nice if it was big and pronounced on the bar then it would get more attention and be more recognised.
"It's so they're not forgotten.
"While you can read their stories around town we keep people's memories and keep our towns achievements alive and strong."
