Tickets are now on sale for Council's third and final trip for the year to the Australia War Memorial.
Residents and ratepayers of Cowra Shire can buy their tickets for the trip to be held on Thursday 25 October for only $10 at Cowra Council.
Council is subsidising the cost of the trips with a top-line coach from Cowra Bus Service picking-up attendees from the Peace Bell, with a guided tour of the War Memorial in Canberra, and coming back to Cowra that afternoon.
Council will also provide morning tea for all passengers on arrival at the War Memorial.
With limited places available, now's the time to get your tickets that are only available at the Customer Service Centre of Cowra Council at 116 Kendal St.
Tickets must be paid for at the time of purchase, either with cash, EFTPOS, or cheque, with the Customer Service Centre, Monday–Friday, 8.30am–4.30pm.
Note that those attending should confirm at the time of purchase whether they wish to take a guided tour of the Memorial. These tours are being funded by Cowra Council, but guides require numbers for booking purposes.
