Echuca and District Vietnam Veterans will hold their annual fundraising stalls across the district next week.
All proceeds will go to the welfare of local veterans and their children, who do not have to be members of the association.
Group president Ken Jones said they traditionally enjoyed a terrific reception to their fundraising efforts.
‘‘The people in this area have been absolutely fabulous to this,’’ he said.
‘‘We have a very good year, every year, because they really contribute.
‘‘They know what it’s about and they’re very generous.’’
Mr Jones said the group appreciated all the money it received as it had ‘‘no other way for getting funds in for what we do’’.
The EDVV draws its membership from Echuca, Moama, Rochester, Tongala, Cohuna, Nathalia and Mathoura.
‘‘The money we raise is also there
The stalls, manned by group members, will be run from Monday to Saturday, August 16, at the pedestrian crossing on Hare St, Echuca Bunnings, Echuca Post Office and at Moama Safeway.
The week culminates at Tongala RSL on Monday, August 18, with a service at 10.30am.
Member for Murray Sharman Stone, Campaspe Shire mayor Ian Maddison and Member for Swan Hill Peter Walsh will all attend.
‘‘Everybody is welcome to come to the service,’’ Mr Jones said.
