Isis memorial tribute to spirit
THE Isis War Memorial Precinct has been a true team effort, with many people, organisations and local and state government involved in its development.
It was officially opened by Queensland Minister for Tourism Peter Lawlor after the Remembrance Day Ceremony yesterday.
The original aim of the project was to build a memorial garden and remembrance precinct adjacent to the existing Soldiers Room Memorial.
A refurbished Krups Cannon/Howitzer sits outside the memorial.
Bundaberg Regional Council Mayor Lorraine Pyefinch said it was wonderful to see the project completed.
“The community organisations, especially Rotary, are to be congratulated,” she said.
“We thank the state government for contributing $225,000 to the half-million-dollar project.
“It is certainly a fitting tribute to the servicemen and women of the Isis and will be for many years to come.”
