Fraser Coast honours fallen heroes

PEOPLE will gather on the Fraser Coast tomorrow to honour those who died serving their country.

Remembrance Day is always held on November 11 and marks the anniversary of the armistice that ended the First World War in 1918.

Each year Australians observe one minute of silence at 11am in memory of those who died or suffered in all wars and armed conflicts.

A service at Freedom Park in Hervey Bay will begin at 10.45am.

It will feature the national anthem and prayers, the laying of wreaths and music provided by the Hervey Bay RSL Pipe Band.

Hervey Bay RSL sub-branch president Dennis Causby will address the crowd and white doves will be released, before members return to the Pialba RSL for a private function.

Maryborough’s service will be held at Queens Park from 10.40am.

RSL sub-branch president Robert Evans will speak, as will Fraser Coast councillors and the Last Post will be sounded by Bryce Whitaker.

Local schools will be involved in both ceremonies and members of the public are also invited to attend.
