Mer­ri­jig re­mem­bers its vet­er­ans

Mansfield Courier - - REMEMBRANCE DAY 2017 -

THE Mer­ri­jig Five Pines Memo­rial site hosted a small but mov­ing Re­mem­brance Day ser­vice on Sat­ur­day.

Stu­dents from Gee­long Gram­mar School Mt Tim­ber­top Cam­pus played a haunt­ing ren­di­tion of The Last Post, the gen­tle notes of the vi­o­lins giv­ing the oc­ca­sion an aus­tere feel­ing.

Brooke Pithie played a num­ber of songs on her bag­pipes, with Peter Howarth and Noel Wil­la­ton both speak­ing dur­ing the ser­vice.

The Mer­ri­jig com­mu­nity would like to ex­tend their thanks to all that made the ef­fort to at­tend the ser­vice, and also to Mans­field Slash­ing, who helped pre­pare the Five Pines site.

HAUNT­ING: Bag­piper Brooke Pithie played a haunt­ing ren­di­tion of Amaz­ing Grace, stand­ing solemnly in front of the Mer­ri­jig Five Pine Memo­rial Av­enue.
