Christmas has come early for a local veterans community group who has received funding in the latest round of the Australian Government’s Saluting Their Service grants program.
Northern based Government Senator Ian Macdonald congratulated the Tablelands branch of the National Servicemen’s Association who received $1, 525 to install a volunteer Defence Corps Memorial Plaque at Rocky Creek War Memorial in Tolga.
“It’s vitally important our community continues to honour the service and sacrifice of the men and women who serve in defence of our nation,” Senator Macdonald said.
“I congratulate the Tablelands Nashos on securing the money for this project, and look forward to seeing it when it is completed.”
The Saluting Their Service Community Commemorative Grants program provides up to $4,000 for an individual project. It is a rolling grants program, so applications are accepted at any time.
Local community organisations interested in applying for funding under the Saluting Their Service grants program should contact the Department of Veterans’ Affairs’ Commemorative Grants team on 1800 555 254 or email [email protected].
