“Under the Building Excellence in Support and Training (BEST) grants program, the Nanango Sub-branch will also receive $1173 to expand on their services to further support veterans and their families.

“Also under BEST, the Blackbutt Sub-branch will receive $2425 and the Yarraman Sub-branch will receive $1975 to continue their great work within these communities.
