On 1 April, Resthaven Murray Bridge, Hills & Fleurieu Community Services welcomed the presentation of four large ‘Lest we forget’ signs by Mr David Laing, Secretary for the Royal South Australian Regiment Association.
Resthaven Community Services Assistant Manager, Kimberley Lord, received the signs, along with veteran, and Resthaven client, Mr Peter Smith.
David had contacted Resthaven to offer the signage that was generously donated by Mr Tony Pasin MP, the Federal Member for Barker.
‘This is a wonderful gesture,’ Kimberley said. ‘We will proudly display the signs at our Resthaven Murray Bridge, Hills & Fleurieu Community Services office at 37 Swanport Road, Murray Bridge.’
‘With many clients who are veterans, we will give the additional signs to some veteran clients in the local area, who may not be able to attend Anzac Day services.’
‘We sincerely thank Tony Pasin for his kind donation, and to David Laing for taking the time to present it to us.’
