I really enjoyed Friday night, after dropping off all my old Army gear for an up and coming Murray Bridge RSL Timor Exhibition, I indulged myself in a meal and a few refreshing beverages after taking a number of images for the clubs 2017 ANZAC Sports Carnival.
Topping off my night was the dulcet tones and melodies of Jen McLoughlin and, Tailem Bend’s legends, Noel and Karen Kneebone – great night and they’re at the Murray Bridge RSL every second and fourth Friday.
Anyhow, if you didn’t know – the Murray Bridge RSL is seeking public assistance with donations and sponsorships to help raise funds for the Murray Bridge High School’s study scholarships, which hopes to send two of its students on a study tour of the Western Front in 2018.
The Murray Bridge RSL is aiming to raise over $20,000 and with last year’s ANZAC Sports Carnival raising well over $4,000 (With all proceeds going directly to the scholarship) their looking to this years ANZAC Carnival to be will more successful.
A local initiative, the Murray Bridge RSL ANZAC Day Sports Carnival raises funds to benefit the community and its veterans, while at the same time educating the wider community on Australian Military history – its also recognises local members that served through the means of sport.
All money raised from this year’s Carnival will go directly to the Murray Bridge High School’s scholarship fund.
The Carnival will feature 12 disciplines of sport over a six week period and will include raffles, an Ambrose Golf Day, Bodybuilding Promo Competition and an evening with South Australian football Icon Graham Cornes.
