The Mumbil Anzac Memorial is set for a revamp thanks to the NSW Government’s Anzac Community Grants Program (ACGP).
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders has today announced $750 for the Mumbil District Progress Association to renovate the local Memorial.
“We recently marked the one-year anniversary of Russia’s war on Ukraine,” Mr Saunders said.
“It serves as a timely reminder of the fragile nature of peace, and the sacrifices made by countless Australians so that we can enjoy the freedoms we have today.
“I would like to acknowledge the Mumbil District Progress Association for their commitment to honouring the service of local veterans and their families. Projects like this are important to help future generations to learn of the efforts of our veterans.”
Minister for Veterans David Elliott said more than 70 NSW community groups, schools and ex-service organisations have received funding from the ACGP.
“More than $104,000 will be provided to a range of projects that commemorate and educate NSW communities about the service and sacrifices of current and former military servicemen and servicewomen,” Mr Elliott said.
“These great projects and initiatives, including the Mumbil Anzac Memorial recognise Australia’s war service history, educate a new generation and support the wellbeing of the NSW veteran community.”
