Hawke's Bay Today - - Local News -

Napier Port is join­ing in on the na­tional Roar­ing Cho­rus for Ar­mistice Cen­te­nary com­mem­o­ra­tions to­mor­row. Up and down the coun­try at 11am to­mor­row, No­vem­ber 11, peo­ple will come to­gether to ob­serve a two minute si­lence of re­mem­brance. This si­lence will be bro­ken by joy­ful noise, echo­ing the cel­e­bra­tions of 100 years ago when peo­ple filled the streets in a spon­ta­neous and ju­bi­lant cel­e­bra­tion at news of the war’s end. The Roar­ing Cho­rus be­gins at 11.02am and ships in port to­mor­row are in­vited to join in with a few cheer­ful toots on the horn. Port peo­ple work­ing in the con­tainer ter­mi­nal and other parts of the port are also in­vited to sound their horns.
