Baradine and District Progress Association has successfully received a $3,637 grant under the Coalition Government’s Saluting Their Service commemorations program.
Member for Parkes Mark Coulton said he is pleased the funding will be used to restore commemorative plaques on the Baradine Second World War Memorial Wall.
“I would like to congratulate Baradine and District Progress Association for their dedication to commemorating Australia’s wartime history,” Mr Coulton said.
“Recognising our local service men and women is crucially important. This project will be another permanent tribute to community members who have served and continue to serve our great country.”
Baradine and District Progress Association received one of 84 Saluting Their Service grants that were recently announced. Another two grants in the Parkes electorate were committed to The Baradine Rusty Club, and Ivanhoe Central School.
“This is a meaningful project for the local community to commemorate Australia’s role in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations and reflect on our gratitude for those who served.”
The Community Commemorative Grants category of the Saluting Their Service program provides up to $4,000 for each project and applications can now be made through the Community Grants Hub – www.communitygrants.gov.au.
