Member for Swan Hill, Peter Walsh, has welcomed the announcement of three history grants to the Swan Hill electorate.
“I am very pleased that three projects to preserve the history of our region have been recognised through the Victorian Government’s Local History Grants program,” Mr Walsh said.
“Projects such as these are vital in ensuring our links with the past are not forgotten.
“The communities we live in today are a result of what our predecessors have done before us and it is important that we preserve and record the events, people and places that shape the way we now live.
The three local projects that have received funding are –
Warracknabeal Anzac Memorial Park Trustees - Awarded: $2,390 to print a booklet documenting the historical elements of the original construction of Anzac Memorial Park, and the ongoing developments through to the present day with particular emphasis on the commemorative plaques, buildings, artifacts and gates located throughout the Park.
Inglewood District Historical Society Inc - Awarded: $2,400 to edit and reprint the book Inglewood in The Scrub a section which will be made available on the Inglewood District Historical Society website.
Charlton 2013 Back-to Committee - Awarded: $8,000 to publish a book celebrating the history, stories and images of Charlton from the last 150 Years.
“These projects have all been developed by volunteers and are further examples of the important and necessary work done by volunteers throughout the region which is particularly being recognised during this year’s National Volunteer Week,” Mr Walsh said.
