Survivors to share tales on radio
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.
