Grants help five Durack projects commemorate Armistice Centenary

More than 660 community projects across the nation commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Armistice of the First World War are set to share in more than $5.3 million under the Armistice Centenary Grants Program.

Federal Member for Durack and Minister for the Environment Melissa Price said she is pleased to announce five of these grants have been awarded in the Durack electorate.

The Durack shires of Morawa, Tammin, Gascoyne Junction, and Northampton, along with Dongara RSL Sub-Branch will share in the funding to mark the occasion including conducting a commemorative ceremony; repair of a remembrance wall; erect an honour roll; install seating, a lectern and flag pole; and install lighting in memorial grounds.

Minister for Veterans’ Affairs Darren Chester said he was impressed with the projects that had been approved for funding, and the innovative ways groups were commemorating the centenary of the First World War Armistice.

“Successful projects and activities include the restoration of relics from the First World War, installation of commemorative plaques, the creation of displays and books, activities to honour the role women played during the war, as well as the installation of honour boards,” Mr Chester said.

Under the Armistice Centenary Grants Program, every Federal electorate had the opportunity to receive up to $50,000 for local projects that commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Armistice on 11 November 2018.
