THE City of Joondalup has now received $48,000 in Federal Government funding for projects to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day.

Moore MHR Ian Goodenough said the City had recently received $20,098 under the Armistice Centenary Grants Program to support an Armistice-themed display at the upcoming Kaleidoscope Festival.

This adds to the $27,902 previously given under the program to deliver, in partnership with the Joondalup City RSL, its Remembrance Day service at the Central Park War Memorial in Joondalup on November 11.

“These projects will be a fitting tribute to appropriately acknowledge the end of World War I 100 years ago,” Mr Goodenough said.

“This restricted round of grants has been designed to deliver local projects and activities to communities like ours to commemorate Australia’s role in the war and pay tribute to service men and women and the Armistice centenary.

“The commitment of organisations such as the City of Joondalup ensures communities like ours can preserve our local history for future generations.

“I would encourage our community to participate in the upcoming events.”

The City of Joondalup was one of 50 successful applicants to receive the funding.
