WA - Serpentine-Jarrahdale RSL
The $5,000 SITA community grant will play an important role in the development of a memorial park in Byford, Western Australia.
This project will be the first of its kind in the Shire of Serpentine-Jarrahdale as a dedicated Memorial Park to those who have served Australia in the Armed Services. The park will enable the Community of the Shire to attend services such as ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day in an area that is both safe and comfortable. It will also be designed to be a place of reflection.
Ric Giblett, RSL President said, 'The funds will go towards a memorial and plaques with the names of those from the Shire who paid the ultimate sacrifice for Australia. The whole of the Western Australian community will have access and enjoy the park when completed."
The Memorial Park is intended to have all the names currently listed on Honour boards hidden away in the various Shire Halls situated in one dedicated public space.
