The Rathdowney and District Memorial Grounds Association has received a boost to continue supporting the local community through the Federal Government’s Stronger Communities Program.
The Rathdowney and District Memorial Grounds Association received $5,420 to help with the cost of purchasing a zero turn mower and installing a shady shelter over the kitchen area in the caravan park.
Secretary Tony Ward said the money would improve the work the Association does in the community.
“We hope these additions to the grounds will enhance Rathdowney as a home for locals and encourage those passing through to stay a little longer and enjoy what our town has to offer,” Mr Ward said.
“From our two Campdrafts to birthday parties, caravan clubs, local sport and events the money will help continue running the complex.”
Federal Member for Wright Scott Buchholz congratulated the Rathdowney and District Memorial Grounds Association on their Stronger Communities Program success.
“The Rathdowney and District Memorial Grounds Association works hard to provide a space for locals and visitors to use and enjoy,” Mr Buchholz said.
“I am proud to be part of a government that supports the initiatives of community minded groups like the Rathdowney and District Memorial Grounds Association through this grant.”
“These Grounds are the heart and soul of this area and I thank the Association for their continued commitment to the local community.”
