Member for Barker Tony Pasin has announced $200,000 in Federal Government Funding that will support a new Murray Bridge War Memorial located in Sturt Reserve.

“It is important that as a community we continue to recognise the contribution of our local veterans,” Mr Pasin said.

“This project is an opportunity for veterans and the community to stand side-by-side, remembering the service and sacrifice of those who have served our country in times of war and peace.”

“The new memorial is to be a place of peace, tranquillity, reflection and commemoration where future generations can pay their respects for all those who have served.

“I approached the Prime Minister to advocate for funding to help get this project happening. I know it’s a project that the Murray Bridge RSL has been working on for years and I’m really pleased that Our Government can assist in making it happen,” Mr Pasin said.
