Hon Darren Chester MP and Llew O'Brien MP announcing the Centenary of Armistice Grants 2018

Federal Member for Wide Bay, Llew O'Brien today announced more than $48,000 will be provided by the Coalition Government to organisations in Wide Bay to develop their projects in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Armistice of the First World War.
 
"Six community organisations will share in $48,774 under the Armistice Centenary Grants Program, to deliver local projects and activities to commemorate Australia's role in the First World War and pay tribute to service men and women and the Armistice Centenary," Mr O'Brien said.

This year, Australians will pause and reflect on the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.  Australia's population was less than five million people, yet 416,809 men enlisted, of whom more than 60,000 were killed and 156,000 wounded, gassed, or taken prisoner.

"These projects throughout Wide Bay will provide a fitting tribute to appropriately acknowledge the end of the war 100 years ago," Mr O'Brien said.

"Each of the applicants have put in great care and thought about how to best show their community's appreciation for service and sacrifice of those who helped secure out nation's freedom in the First World War.

"I congratulate the organisations and look forward to the results of these projects that will preserve our local history for future generations,"   Mr O'Brien said.  

These recipients represent successful applicants receiving funding for community projects to commemorate Australia's wartime history and the 100th anniversary of the Armistice recently announced by the Minister for Veterans' Affairs, Darren Chester.

"Commemorating this important date in our history is a true testament to the success of the Anzac Centenary 2014–18 and I have no doubt these projects will create a lasting legacy of remembrance," Mr Chester said.
