Merrijig remembers its veterans
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.
