Medal nominations closing
Nominations for the 2017 Shrine of Remembrance Medal close on Friday.
The prestigious award is an opportunity to recognise individuals and groups who have made a significant contribution towards honouring the service and sacrifice of Victorians in war and peacekeeping.
‘‘There are many people from communities across the Euroa electorate who dedicate their time to ensuring the sacrifice of past and present servicemen and women are never forgotten,’’ Member for Euroa Steph Ryan said.
‘‘Most do their work without recognition and this is the perfect opportunity to provide them with the thanks they deserve.’’
Recipients will be presented at a special invitation-only event following the Remembrance Day service at the shrine on November 11.
Nominations must be received by 5 pm on Friday. Nomination forms are available at Ms Ryan’s office (25 Bridge St, Benalla) or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
