Donation ensures loud and clear ANZAC services in Junee
Not a word was missed during the all-important Junee RSL Sub-Branch ANZAC Day commemorative services this year, thanks to new audio equipment funded by the Inland Rail Sponsorships and Donations program.
President of the Junee RSL Sub-Branch, Greg Zakharoff, said the invaluable contribution improved the experience for attendees at the Junee Cenotaph and Junee Reefs Ivor Hall events.
“ANZAC Day is an important day where the local community comes together to commemorate the fallen from past conflicts and to honour our veterans and current serving personnel,” said Mr Zakharoff.
“We need the sound system to cover the audience, which is spread across an area about the size of a soccer field, and the new equipment allows our volunteer audio team to quickly and efficiently roll the sound system out.”
Junee RSL Sub-Branch used the Inland Rail donation to buy four portable speakers, three stage boxes, audio, microphone and speaker cables and extension cords to suit varying locations and set ups.
This means other local community groups will also be able to use their equipment for their events and festivals.
Applications are currently open for round two of the sponsorship and donations program. Visit here for details on how to apply.
