FEDERAL FUNDING FOR COOROY-POMONA LIONS CLUB
Improvements to the Pomona Rotunda War Memorial will bring renewed emphasis to the war time service and sacrifice of local men and women, with the installation of a memorial seat and plaque funded by the Australian Government’s Saluting Their Service Commemorative Grants Program.
Mr O’Brien was accompanied by the Shadow Minister for Agriculture and Leader of the Nationals, David Littleproud for his visit to the Lions clubhouse today.
“The Saluting Their Service grants are awarded to projects that commemorate the service and sacrifice of our military personnel in wars, conflicts, and peace operations,” Mr O’Brien said.
“The Cooroy-Pomona Lions are very grateful to receive this funding,” President, Mrs Heather Manders said.
“The Saluting Their Service grant will be used to install a remembrance seat and plaque to honour our fallen soldiers at Joe Bazzo Park, and the Volunteer Grant will provide a trailer for our Cash for Cans Program, where all funds raised go back to the local community.”
“The Lions Club does wonderful work in the community, and this funding will assist them with their community and commemorative activities,” Mr Littleproud said.
“Volunteers are often the glue that holds communities together, and they make a real and positive difference in the lives of others.”
