RSL recognise efforts of business

BUCK'S Seafood owners and operators Buck and Sally Little were presented with a plaque for their support of the Airlie Beach RSL Sub-Branch on Tuesday morning.

The business owners have helped support the RSL Sub-Branch since it was established in May 1999.

RSL president Terry Brown and vice president Bill Rose said they were thankful to the business owners for their support over the years.

"They have supported us every ANZAC Day and helped us raise funds for our navy cadet hall," Mr Rose said.

"These crests are something we give to specific people who show community spirit and it's nice to know people in business are still supporting the community."

Mr Little said it was an honour to be recognised for his efforts.

"I'm the son of a soldier, my father was a son of a soldier and my grandfather was the son of a soldier and so forth," he said.

"There is no greater thing then to see all the young people at the ANZAC Day ceremonies remembering those who served.

"The RSL at both branches do a lot in this area to make sure the day is still recognised because it means a lot to many people."
