FOR what they have done this we will do — the simple reason all Australians must ensure the legacy of commemoration continues this Anzac Day.
Federal Member for Mitchell, the Hon Alex Hawke MP, is encouraging Mitchell residents to commemorate Anzac Day in 2021 in a respectful and meaningful way.
“Anzac Day was the most sacred day of commemoration on the Australian calendar and a time for us to remember the service and sacrifice of all Australian service personnel who have served our nation for over a century,” Alex Hawke said.
Community groups across Mitchell will be supported by a new Morrison Government program to lower energy costs, support local jobs and help reduce global emissions.
The Powering Communities Program will fund up to 12 projects worth a total of $67,700 in Mitchell. Grants of between $5,000 and $12,000 will be available to eligible community organisations, with no co-contribution required.
The Morrison Government’s first priority is to keep Australians safe, including when they are online.
The Government is urging businesses and organisations to follow advice from the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) following vulnerable Microsoft Exchange systems being compromised by malicious cyber actors.
Many Australians have not yet installed the Microsoft patch- this is the necessary software update to protect themselves from potential compromise.
