South West projects acknowledging 100th anniversary of armistice

Member for Forrest Nola Marino said the 100th anniversary of the Armistice of the First World War will continue to be commemorated across the South West with six new projects to get underway.

Mrs Marino said these six projects were funded under the Armistice Centenary Grants Program.

“Augusta Community Resource Centre has received $9,673 to construct a monument at Memorial Park,” Mrs Marino said.

“Shire of Donnybrook-Balingup has received $5,311 to establish a flagpole at the Donnybrook RSL.

“The Tenth Light Horse Bunbury Troop has received $4,364 to preserve military uniforms for ceremonial events.

“Nannup RSL has received $3,550 to display a commemorative art installation near the Nannup War Memorial.

“Bunbury Historical Society has received $3,475 to hold a public event surrounding the restoration of a commemorative stained glass window within King Cottage Museum.

“Shire of Harvey have received $3,728 to install an armistice interpretive sign and commemorative bell at the Harvey War Memorial.
