DUTTON PARK RECEIVES FUNDING TO RESTORE MEMORIAL GARDENS
Member for Barker, Tony Pasin MP has congratulated the Dutton Park Inc. on a recent Federal Government grant to support veterans and commemorate the service and sacrifice of local service personnel.
Meeting with committee members recently, Mr Pasin said he was pleased to see the Kapunda community actively pursuing Federal funding to maintain infrastructure and commemorate all who have served.
Dutton Park Inc. has been successful in their application for $10,000 to restore and redevelop the Soldiers Memorial Gardens.
The Park includes a number of memorials to those who served including Sister Vivian Bullwinkel, sole survivor of the 1942 Banka Island massacre, who was born at Kapunda.
“It’s important that the Gardens remain in great shape to continue to appropriately commemorate the service and sacrifice of those all who have served. By ensuring that the gardens are well maintained and upgraded when needed the Dutton Park Committee are ensuring that the memory of those who served at war is kept alive. I commend Dutton Park Inc committee for taking this important initiative,” Mr Pasin said.
“I look forward to returning to visit the Soldiers Memorial Gardens when the work has been completed,” Mr Pasin said.
The Federal Government’s 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.
