Minister for Veterans’ Affairs, Hon Hugh Delahunty recently visited Waverley to meet with the Waverley RSL to discuss matters of importance to returned service men and women throughout the state.

Over morning tea in my electorate office, the Minister outlined programs available from the Victorian Government to support communities in their efforts to recognise the sacrifices of our service men and women. These Victorian Government funded programs include;

  • Galleries of Remembrance Program
  • Anzac Centenary Major Grants Program
  • Victorian Veterans Council – Anzac Centenary Community Grants Program
  • Anzac Commemorative Naming Project
  • Restoring Community War Memorials and Avenues of Honour Grants
  • Premier’s Spirit of Anzac Prize

Following morning tea the Minister also visited the Waverley RSL to meet with local residents utilising RSL facilities and gain a first-hand look at the facilities.

I take this opportunity to thank Mr Dennis Everitt, Secretary, Waverley RSL Sub Branch and Mr George Cooney, Executive Member, Waverley RSL Sub Branch for taking the time to meet with the Minister and I during his visit to Waverley.
