Spe­cial mo­ment for our Ar­mistice me­mo­rial

Fraser Coast Chronicle - - REMEMBRANCE DAY CENTENARY -

TO­MOR­ROW’S com­mem­o­ra­tions will be the first Re­mem­brance Day lo­cals and tourists alike can pay their re­spects at the com­pleted Gal­lipoli to Ar­mistice me­mo­rial in Queens Park.

The $3.2 mil­lion Mary­bor­ough project was of­fi­cially opened in April of this year and has been cred­ited with an in­crease in the town’s tourism sta­tis­tics.

Vice Pres­i­dent of Queens Park Mil­i­tary Trail Com­mit­tee Greig Bold­er­row said guided tours would be run at the world-class me­mo­rial around the main cer­e­mony at the ceno­taph.

“This is an op­por­tu­nity for lo­cals to get to know the nu­ances of the project to ex­plain to their friends and vis­i­tors,” he said.

“To­day is not just about Gal­lipoli but re­mem­ber­ing all those who serve.”
