BEACHPORT RECEIVES BOOST TO COMMEMORATE WAR EFFORT
Federal Member for Barker, Tony Pasin MP has visited the Beachport Old Wool and Grain Museum to congratulate volunteers on receiving $7,000 in funding from the Federal Government’s Saluting their Service Grants Program to expand their collection of war memorabilia.
The funding will be used to purchase and install two custom made cabinets and four mannequins to display military uniforms.
Mr Pasin said he was proud to support the Museum to commemorate the local war effort and help tell the story of the first two casualties in Australia killed as a result of enemy action in World War II when a sea mine exploded near Beachport in 1941.
“The Museum is a great asset to the Beachport community and I’m so pleased that this Federal funding can assist in continuing to build their display,” Mr Pasin said.
The Saluting Their Service (STS) Commemorative Grants Program is designed to commemorate the service and sacrifice of Australia’s service personnel in wars, conflicts and peace operations, and their families.
