Lawrence Historical Society have recently added a new building to their museum. They need new furniture to display and store their local historical artefacts.
Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan today announced $2,760 to put towards this project.
“Local museums are very important. They are filled with fantastic historical items and community stories,” Mr Hogan said.
“Currently they are using stacked old tables for storage.”
“This funding will allow them to purchase demountable shelving for the museum volunteers to store, manage, conserve and repair museum objects.”
“Volunteers are central to so many local organisations and provide important services in our community.”
“It is important to support the efforts of these organisations and the individuals that allow them to function.”
