Volunteers of the Junee RSL sub-branch have been left partially in the dark following this week's removal of a ban on fundraising.
Two years ago, a temporary moratorium was placed on all sub branches, following a financial scandal at the wider state level.
While other groups across the state have been given express permission to return to work, Junee's members have had no correspondence, says sub branch secretary Shane Logan.
"We've heard it through other groups around us, but nothing has actually been said to us yet," Mr Logan said.
"It's been such a long time since we were able to fundraise, what money we had was getting tight."
It follows a temporary lifting of the ban before Anzac Day, that unfortunately came too late for the Junee volunteers.
"We were only told about two weeks before, by then it was too late to do anything about it," Mr Logan said.
The day's processions cost the team up to $1000 from their coffers, which have been quickly draining during the ban.
"We're down to buggery and we've never been well off," Mr Logan said.
"Using that kind of money every year, a lot of little sub-branches would have to fold up."
Even without the official word, the Junee sub-branch welfare officer Ross Reid has welcomed the end of the ban with open arms.
"We didn't know how many days, weeks, months we'd be stopped from raising any amount of money," he said.
"We were hoping it would just be a couple of months, but it was a couple of years."
Mr Reid described the opportunity to replenish reserves as a "relief to know".
"There's sufficient time for us to raise enough before the next big event," he said.
"Our treasurer may be able to smile again."
But Mr Logan fears the state's RSLs are not out of the woods just yet.
"It's not over yet," he said.
"I know people who won't rejoin because of what happened in Sydney.
"We can fundraise again, but it will take us longer to rebuild our image [at a state level]. Here in Junee though, we've always been above board."
