THE Federal Government has given the City of Joondalup $27,902 for a Remembrance Day event to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.
Moore MHR Ian Goodenough said the City received funding through the Armistice Centenary Grants Program to deliver, in partnership with the Joondalup City RSL, the November 11 service at the Central Park War Memorial.
Mr Goodenough said the grants supported projects to commemorate Australia’s role in the war and pay tribute to service men and women and the Anzac Centenary.
Mayor Albert Jacob said the grant would also support a project allowing school students to submit artwork for display in the lead up to Remembrance Day.
Pearce MHR Christian Porter said organisations in his electorate has received more than $28,000 collectively for four projects.
The Yanchep-Two Rocks RSL received $12,000 to restore the war memorial in Yanchep National Park.
York RSL received $6364 to make and build a metal arch and low brick wall with memorial plaques, while Northam RSL received $5455 for activities in the four weeks leading up to November 11.
Another $4273 was allocated to Ellenbrook Primary School to install a plaque in its memorial garden.
“Each of these projects is a fitting tribute to appropriately acknowledge the end of the war 100 years ago,” Mr Porter said.
