Federal Member for Grey Rowan Ramsey has commended the Beltana Progress Association on receiving Federal Government funding for their commitment to commemorating Australia’s wartime history and recognising our local service men and women.
“The Beltana Progress Association will receive funding of $1938 under the Australian Government’s Saluting Their Service commemorations program to hold an inaugural Anzac Day service and install a flagpole at the Beltana Hall,” Mr Ramsey said.
“Holding an Anzac Day service is a fitting tribute to local community members who have served and continue to serve our country.”
Beltana Progress Association will received one of 84 Saluting Their Service grants recently announced by the Minister for Veterans’ Affairs, Darren Chester with two other successful applicants in Grey- Burra RSL Sub Branch and District Council of Mount Remarkable.
“This latest round of ongoing Community Commemorative Grants will ensure the delivery of meaningful projects to local communities like ours to commemorate Australia’s role in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations and reflect our gratitude to service men and women,” Mr Ramsey said.
“The commitment of organisations such as these ensures communities like ours can preserve our local history for future generations.”
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.
