Paying tribute to service men and women in Nanango and Yarraman

June 12, 2020

New displays are coming to Nanango’s RSL hall and the Yarraman Memorial Hall, to honour our service men and women, Maranoa MP David Littleproud said today.

“These tributes will promote an appreciation and understanding of the role that those who served played in shaping our nation,” Mr Littleproud said.

“The Nanango RSL Sub-Branch, with $5069 in funding, will install a display cabinet to present military artefacts which will be a moving tribute and reminder for us about those who’ve made great sacrifices for our nation.

“At the Yarraman Memorial Hall, $2915 will go towards installing images on windows, providing viewers with an opportunity to reflect on the sacrifices and hardships our service men and women have gone through.

“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 Nanango RSL Sub-Branch and Yarraman Memorial Hall Society make the most of this initiative.”

The Maranoa electorate was the recipient of $7984 in the latest Community Commemorative Grants category of the Saluting Their Service Programme.
