The Federal Member for Lindsay Melissa McIntosh MP congratulates Penrith RSL sub-Branch on being awarded funding to restore Penrith Memorial Park Garden War Memorial as part of the latest round of Saluting Their Service Commemorative Grants Program.

Penrith RSL sub-Branch was selected as one of among 80 key community organisations in Australia to secure a share of more than $1 million in grant funding, with $5,000 awarded for refurbishment works to restore Penrith Memory Park War Memorial.

The grants were awarded to ex-service organisations, community groups, schools and local councils for important local projects that commemorate the sacrifice and service of veterans and to ensure the ongoing preservation of Australia’s military history.

“Saluting Their Service grants is an ongoing national grants program which provides the much-needed funding to organisations devoted to honouring the service of defence personnel who sacrificed their lives so that Australians today can be safe and secure,” said Mrs McIntosh.

“This year will be the 50 th anniversary of the end of Australia’s involvement in the Vietnam War. The grant is a very timely recognition that marks the enduring commitment of Penrith RSL sub-Branch’s dedication to preserving the memory of our fallen heroes.

“Penrith RSL sub-Branch has made a significant contribution to our Lindsay electorate with their wonderful commemorative activities, helping our local community to remember and respect those who have served and sacrificed for Australia.

“Exactly 101 years has passed since the Penrith Memorial Park Garden War Memorial was originally dedicated on 8 July 1922, and nearly a century later the efforts of strong community advocacy has ensured future generations of our community can honour the legacy of our local veterans,” said Mrs McIntosh.

The current round of Saluting Their Service grants is now open, for new applications or for more information visit the GrantConnect website.
