The Walton and Lacy Mahon Family Legacy Fund

As a young man, Walton (Walt) Mahon grew up in Bowling Green, Virginia. He met and married his wife, Lacy Mahon (1931-2015) and decided to raised their two children, Laura and Bern in his Caroline County hometown.

During Walt’s loyal and remarkable career at Union Bank and Trust, he worked his way up the latter from teller to Bank President. Union Bank and Trust was a philanthropic leader in Caroline County.

“Being the only bank in the county, everyone called upon us for help. There were so many opportunities to be involved. It’s amazing to me how many people had a feel for helping something like the fire department and rescue squad,” said Walt.

To Walt and Lacy, community service was an intrinsic part of their lives. As active lifetime members of Bowling Green Baptist Church, Walt served as a Deacon and Lacy both taught Sunday school and served as Woman’s Missionary Union president. Lacy served as president for the Junior Woman’s Club and as treasurer for the Caroline Historical Society and Walton was a Ruritan Club member for over 50 years.

Preserving the beauty of Caroline County was another passion they shared. Lacy was a charter member of the Caroline Garden Club and Walt has led efforts to plant more trees throughout Bowling Green. 

The Walton and Lacy Mahon Family Legacy Fund of The Community Foundation will support historic preservation, recreation, youth, and beautification in Bowling Green and Caroline County in perpetuity. It will honor Walt and Lacy’s hometown and make way for their children and grandchildren to continue their commitment to community involvement. The fund is a beautiful tribute to the Mahon family’s love for our region and will serve neighbors and friends forever for good.
