How Murray Will Honour The ANZAC Day Legacy

This year marks the 103rd anniversary of the landing at Anzac Cove. And this year, like every other, is an important day for communities to gather to commemorate our service men and women.

Member for Murray Austin Evans has encouraged locals to pause and reflect on the service and sacrifice of those who have defended our nation.

“Anzac Day is a day of remembrance. It is the day for the general public to pay their respects to current and former defence personnel who have served our country.”

- Mr Evans said.

It's also a timely reminder to local veteran’s groups and community organisations to apply for the latest round of the Community War Memorials Fund (CWMF), which provides grants of up to $10,000 to protect, conserve and repair war memorials, statues, honour rolls and memorial halls.

“Applications close on Anzac Day 2018. I encourage anyone in the local community who believes their memorial needs conservation or protection to apply.”

- Mr Evans said.

There were 49 separate memorials as part of the CWMF last financial year, with continual upgrades at Hyde Park.
