Remembrance Day 2018 on the Peninsula
Published on 31 October 2018
Each year Remembrance Day is held on 11 November. This year Remembrance Day also marks a Centenary of Armistice, being 100 years since the end of the First World War.
Remembrance Day is an opportunity to acknowledge and show appreciation for servicemen and women who have contributed to our freedom today.
Many people will observe a minute’s silence at 11am in memory of those who have died while defending our country. Lest we forget.
Around the Peninsula, eight services are planned to commemorate the Centenary of Armistice.
Mornington Peninsula Shire Mayor Councillor Bryan Payne said Mornington Peninsula Shire Council proudly supports the events hosted by RSLs around the Peninsula on Sunday 11 November.
“This year services are spread across the peninsula at varying times providing opportunity for all to attend and pay their respects to the many men and women who have served our country in war”.
