Remembrance Day will be celebrated in the Benalla Botanical Gardens this Sunday.November 8, 2012 4:33am
Local veterans are getting ready this week for their annual Remembrance Day commemorations.
RSL branch member and past president Tom Heaney said the service would be relatively short.
“There will be students from the different schools involved as well,” Mr Heaney said.
Members of the Benalla branch of the RSL are already selling poppies down the street.
“We are selling them and the money raised goes to the welfare of our veterans,” he said.
Mr Heaney said he thanked the support of the community.
“We always get a really good response from the community and we are very grateful for this,” he said.
‘‘These days the money raised is being used more and more to support our soldiers currently serving in Afghanistan, Timor and Iraq.
“I do encourage the community to come along to the services and pay their respects to those who have served and those who are serving.”
Members of the RSL will be at the Euroa races at the Benalla Race Club this weekend selling poppies.
