Remembrance Day a commemoration of service, duty and community
Independent Member for Indi Cathy McGowan says the values of service, duty and community will be commemorated in Remembrance Day services across North East Victoria on Saturday 11 November.
Ms McGowan will attend the Marysville service at 10.45am.
“Congratulations to the local RSLs and communities who work so hard to ensure the commitment of service men and women is acknowledged,” Ms McGowan said.
“Our communities are rightly proud of the sons and daughters who were prepared to sacrifice everything to fight for a better world.”
Following her grandfather’s service in World War I, Ms McGowan has a strong sense of personal connection to Remembrance Day.
“This year has special significance for many communities —100 years since Beersheba and the Light Horse and 75 years since Kokoda.
“I encourage everyone to find a local service to participate in, buy a red poppy and observe a minutes silence at 11am. Lest we forget.”
