Wooroolin Memorial Hall will get a mini-makeover thanks to a $7954 State Government grant.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced on Tuesday that the Wooroolin Community Committee was one of six groups across Queensland to receive funding under Round 2 of the Queensland Veterans’ Memorial Grants Program.
Wooroolin Community Committee secretary Wendy Turner said she was delighted the committee was receiving the funding.
It would be used to refurbish the silky oak doors that lead into the hall as well as the tiled steps.
Local councillor Ros Heit said it was fantastic news for the Wooroolin community members who do so much to maintain their facilities.
Premier Palaszczuk said it was a privilege to support the communities and organisations caring for war memorials across Queensland.
“Memorials link the past to the present and are an important way for young people to understand the contribution of our servicemen and women,” she said.
“The Queensland Veterans’ Memorial Grants Program helps to ensure veterans’ groups and other eligible community organisations can continue to create and conserve a lasting legacy for future generations.”
The final round is now open and includes funding of up to $40,000 per project and additional funding of up to $10,000 for conservation management plans.
Applications close in August.
