Member for Barker, Tony Pasin has congratulated the South Australian Athletic League on a successful Mount Gambier Gift that was supported with funding from Round five of the Morrison Government’s Stronger Communities Program.

Mr Pasin said he was pleased to have secured $6,000 towards the event that has seen reappearance after 10 years.

“Events like this bring people from across the region to participate in physical activity in a great community atmosphere. They also generate economic activity for our small businesses. In short, it’s a great event for the Mount Gambier community and I’m pleased our government could help support it,” Mr Pasin said. 

“Well done to the organisers and all the competitors on a great event,” Mr Pasin said.

The Stronger Communities Program provides not for profit organisations access to funds for small projects aimed at strengthening communities.
