MOYNE residents are being urged to join people around the world in marking the centenary of the Armistice on the weekend.
Services and wreath-laying events are planned for several sites across the region.
Port Fairy RSL president Doug Nolte said he hoped the community would show unprecedented signs of support.
“We’d like to see a good attendance this year as we mark the 100-year anniversary,” he said.
The Rotary Club of Port Fairy will host an unveiling service within the Port Fairy Botanical Gardens thanks to the Department of Veteran's Affairs’ Australia Remembers program.
Guests are invited to meet at the township’s memorial at Railway Place at 11am on Sunday for a RSL service, followed by a short service at the Gardens at 11.30am to unveil a plaque commemorating the Centenary.
A pair of recently planted Moreton Bay Figs, guards and a plaque were thanks to a $3000 grant, with Bamstone contributing a plinth to hold the plaque.
“I like the idea because pre-First World War, the Gardens were at their prime and used all the time,” Rotary Club of Port Fairy member Margaret Whitehead said.
“I’m sure soldiers before they went off to war would meet and have picnics at the Gardens with their families.
“It’s a quiet, contemplative area and 100 years on we encourage people to stop there and think about the losses sustained in war.
“We’d love to see all those who want to mark the anniversary join us on Sunday.”
