Benalla Ensign - - Front Page -

State Mem­ber for Euroa Steph Ryan has con­grat­u­lated the Raise the Roof com­mit­tee on their ef­forts in se­cur­ing $250 000 from the gov­ern­ment to help build a new eques­trian cen­tre.

Ms Ryan said the fund­ing was a great out­come for the com­mit­tee, which has worked tire­lessly to write grant ap­pli­ca­tions to raise funds and pro­mote the project.

“This is a fan­tas­tic out­come for the Raise the Roof com­mit­tee and for the en­tire Be­nalla com­mu­nity,” Ms Ryan said.

“The group has been com­mit­ted to this project for sev­eral years now, fundrais­ing $100 000 to­wards the arena them­selves.

“I would like to con­grat­u­late those that have pas­sion­ately ar­gued for this project, in­clud­ing the Raise the Roof com­mit­tee’s Melissa Moun­sey.

“I have been a strong sup­porter of the Raise the Roof project since its be­gin­ning and I amde­lighted the gov­ern­ment has come through with fund­ing to match our elec­tion com­mit­ment.

“In July this year I an­nounced that if elected in Novem­ber, The Na­tion­als would pledge $250 000 to the project.

“It is won­der­ful to see that re­gard­less of the elec­tion out­come, the Be­nalla Sports and Eques­trian Cen­tre will ben­e­fit from a state-ofthe-art cen­tre.

“The in­door arena will give riders from Be­nalla and sur­round­ing towns an all-weather sur­face to ride in rain, hail or shine.

“The Raise the Roof com­mit­tee have shown what ded­i­ca­tion and hard work can achieve.”
