Robe RSL Sub-Branch will receive funding from the Federal Government to continue its work commemorating the service and sacrifice of local defence force personal.

Member for Barker, Tony Pasin, said the Robe RSL Sub-Branch has received $2,800 from the Government’s Saluting Their Service (STS) Grants Program to help commemorate Australian war time history.

“Barker has a proud military history and the actions of the Robe RSL Sub-Branch contribute to preserving that history for future generations,” Mr Pasin said.

Robe RSL Sub-Branch will use the funding to build and install a purpose-built cabinet to display wartime memorabilia.

“I am so pleased that the Robe RSL Sub-Branch has received this funding and I encourage other organisations to get involved in future rounds of this important Program.” Mr Pasin said.

Organisations across Australia shared in more than $1.2 million to fund projects that will assist with ensuring the commemoration of our current and former Australian Defence Force personnel continues.

The Department of Veterans’ Affairs administers the STS grants. Applications for the next round of STS grants is now open. For more information or to submit your application, visit the STS page on the Grants Hub or visit the DVA website.
