Paying tribute to service men and women in Clifton

March 2, 2020

  The bang of hammers will ring out when works commence on cabinets for the Clifton and District Historical Society Museum, thanks to $2589 secured through the Federal Government’s Saluting Their Service grants, Maranoa MP David Littleproud said today.

“The two cabinets will display local military memorabilia – promoting an appreciation and understanding of the role that those who served played in shaping our nation,” Mr Littleproud said.

“The Clifton Historical Society Museum has shown real initiative with the display cabinets because it’s history that we all need to know, informing and reminding us about those who’ve made great sacrifices for our nation.

“The latest round of grants ensures the delivery of meaningful projects in local communities to commemorate Australia’s role in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations and reflects our gratitude to service men and women.

“We will continue to support the work of organisations that preserve our local history for future generations and it’s fitting that the Clifton Historical Society Museum makes the most of this initiative.”

The Maranoa electorate was the recipient of $9189 in the latest Community Commemorative Grants category of the Saluting Their Service Programme.
