It was a pleasure to attend the official opening of the Wagga City Aero Club extension, alongside club president Geoff Bruest and fellow club officials today.
This was clearly a milestone achievement for the club.
Having come a long long way since the airport was built in 1937, the club, like others, has provided a sense of companionship, company and community across the city for decades.
I was pleased to grant Wagga City Aero Club’s second successful Community Building Partnerships Grant application of $16,549 last year and I was delighted to witness its outcome.
With this new facility, the club can now cater for its many functions and activities, but it also stands as a symbol of hard work, dedication, commitment, sacrifice and teamwork.
To that end, I would like to congratulate every member and every person who contributed to this extension, which will not only support the club, but fellow organizations, clubs and community groups.
It is important clubs and community hubs like these stay supported and are allowed to keep soaring.
So when they need a helping hand, it’s good to know there are grants and funding opportunities available through the state government.
Funding boosts like the Community Building Partnerships Grants have helped to deliver positive social, environmental and recreational achievements for a number of organisations.
