More than just a bicycle rack ... A bicycle rack in the shape of a fish holds special meaning as part of the Lansing Lions Club playground improvements. The bicycle rack was initiated by a donation from Lansing resident Steve Casterton in memory of his nephew, Danan John Lansing of Ossian, who passed away at the age of 16 but loved to fish and take part in other activities with his grandparents in Lansing and was a strong student and athlete at South Winneshiek High School involved in many activities.
