“I would like to congratulate The Lake Boga Lions Club and the Lake Boga Flying Boat Museum for their successful grant submission," says Member for Mallee Anne Webster.

Dr. Webster says projects such as these are key for the region.

“Mallee has a proud military background and the actions of the Lake Boga Flying Boat Museum contribute to preserving that history for future generations.

"It is such a worthy project. And I’d encourage other organisations in across Mallee to consider submitting an application in future rounds for any upcoming projects."
