Remembering them

THIS Sunday, on the 11th hour, of the 11th day of the 11th month, communities within The Central Highlands and Isaac will join together to remember those who sacrificed it all.

President of the Emerald RSL Noel Mallyon said this year's Remembrance Day signifies the centenary of armistice.

"Remembrance Day is not just for the ending of World War I, it's for the ending of all wars and conflicts Australians have been involved in,” he said.

"We must remember there was over 100,000 men and women who have given their lives in wars and conflicts since World War I. It's very important that we remember.”

Mr Mallyon's great belief is that we can all find one minute of our life to give to those that gave their lives for us.

"One minute is not a long time. In that minute take time to reflect on how lucky we are for the people that gave their lives for Australia,” he said.

The Emerald service will take place at 11am, Sunday, at the Emerald Cenotaph.

Join together with your local community and remember those who fought for us to have a future.
