Sur­vivors to share tales on ra­dio

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Letters -

This year com­mem­o­rates the cen­te­nary of Armistice Day, or Re­mem­brance Day as many of us know it, 100 years since the end of World War I. The Au­gusta Com­mu­nity Re­source Cen­tre has formed a part­ner­ship with the Au­gusta-Kar­ri­dale RSL and the Au­gusta His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety to pro­vide a com­mu­nity event to hon­our our fore­bears and to­day’s ser­vice­men and women for the sac­ri­fice they have made for their coun­try, but in par­tic­u­lar to com­mem­o­rate the end of WWI.

In the week lead­ing up to the event, 2Ocean­sFM Ra­dio will be broad­cast­ing in­ter­views with peo­ple who have sto­ries to share about their ex­pe­ri­ences in wartime, whether this was in armed com­bat or how life was for those at home or peo­ple who had un­usual roles to play.

If you have a story to tell and would be will­ing to be in­ter­viewed we would love to hear from you.

A sun­set cer­e­mony will be con­ducted at Au­gusta Light­house on Fri­day, Novem­ber 9, fol­lowed by re­fresh­ments at the Light House Cafe. On Sun­day, Novem­ber 11, just be­fore 11am, the Au­gusta CRC will present the Au­gusta- Kar­ri­dale RSL with a new memo­rial to be erected in Memo­rial Park on Osnaburg Street, Au­gusta.

Con­tact Au­gusta Com­mu­nity Re­source Cen­tre on 9758 0002 or Jane O’Reilly on 0424 545 799 if you would like to share your story on the ra­dio.
