Burnett Heads diggers' history needed for memorial
THE Burnett Heads Lighthouse Hotel Community raffle group has donated $4000 toward the refurbishment of the Burnett Heads War Memorial, with a second donation of $2000 last week.
The Memorial Park Committee have applied to the Queensland Government for a grant from the Centenary of Anzac grants program to assist with the cost of refurbishing the memorial. Successful grants will be announced in November.
The names of First World War enlistees from Burnett Heads will be included on the memorial and the Memorial Park Committee is seeking information for a history on the known diggers.
