Hon Jane Prentice MP, Federal Member for Ryan, has commended Moggill Historical Society and Kenmore and District Historical Society on receiving Federal Government funding to develop their projects to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Armistice of the First World War.
Mrs Prentice said Moggill Historical Society had received $4,000 under the Armistice Centenary Grants Program to support the publishing of a hard copy and online book commemorating soldiers recruited from Moggill during the First World War.
Kenmore and District Historical Society also received $3,214 to fund the publishing of a commemorative book.
“These projects will be a fitting tribute to appropriately acknowledge the end of the war 100 years ago,” Mrs Prentice said.
“These grants have been designed to deliver local projects and activities to communities like ours to commemorate Australia’s role in the First World War and pay tribute to service men and women and the Armistice Centenary,” Mrs Prentice said.
“The commitment of organisations such as Moggill and Kenmore and District Historical Societies ensures communities like ours can preserve our local history for future generations,” Mrs Prentice said.
Under the Armistice Centenary Grants Program every electorate in Australia will receive up to $50,000 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Armistice of the First World War.
