Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies MP has congratulated the St Mary’s RSL Sub-branch upon receiving a $22,000 grant from the NSW Government for the upgrade of the sandstone memorial and plaque which forms the centrepiece of all commemorations and remembrance events.
As a Patron of the St Marys RSL Sub-branch, Tanya Davies was pleased to present the cheque to President Ron Blakely and other members of the sub-branch.
“Over many years, I have witnessed the sub-branch executive and members' vibrant community activities both locally and further afield. I am proud to provide this financial support in recognition of their community service, contribution and highly skilled welfare and advocacy for our community,” Tanya Davies said.
This grant has enabled improvements to the visibility of the memorial including raising the sandstone memorial piece, inserting flood lights to highlight the memorial stone and laying a cement pathway that links the memorial upgrade to the Vietnam war APC (Armoured Personnel Carrier).
“I would like to thank Premier Gladys Berejiklian for supporting the St Marys RSL Sub-branch through this grant,” Tanya Davies said.
