Grant to spruce up war memorial

Northern Daily Leader - July 16, 2016

GLEN INNES’ rich war history will continue to be treasured, with a government grant to give the town’s memorial a new look.

The state government announced it would provide the town with a grant of $3000 for the Anzac Park National Service Memorial and Garden to repaint the memorial’s gateway and give the cenotaph a new look under the Community War Memorials Fund.

An Anzac Community Fund Grant will also provide almost $2000 to assist 18 local veterans in an excursion to the Royal Australian Air Force Base in Williamtown and the Australian Army Museum in Singleton.

Glen Innes RSL sub-branch president Gordon Taylor was delighted that the funding would help the RSL “keep the memory of our veterans alive for the future”.
