Member for Barker Tony Pasin today announced Government funding for a local project to honour Australia’s wartime history.

Mr Pasin said the Loxton RSL Sub-branch would receive $9,704 as part of the Australian Government’s Saluting Their Service grants program to:

  • Produce a ‘Soldier at Rest’ tress carving in from of the Loxton RSL,
  • Purchase picture frames to display memorabilia and
  • Develop educational packs for the use of schools in the Loxton area.

“It’s important that our community continues to honour the service and sacrifice of the men and women who serve in defence of our nation,” Mr Pasin said.

“Local organisations, such as the Loxton RSL Sub-branch are ensuring that we honour our military history in ways that are meaningful to our community.

“I congratulate them on their project and look forward to seeing it when it is completed.”

Mr Pasin encouraged local groups to apply for funding to support community projects that honoured our military history.

The Saluting Their Service Community Commemorative Grants program provides up to $4,000 for an individual project. It is a rolling grants program, so applications are accepted at any time.

Local community organisations interested in applying for funding under the Saluting Their Service grants program should contact the Department of Veterans’ Affairs’ Commemorative Grants team on 1800 555 254 or email
