To mark Armistice Day, Rotorua Lakes Council, Returned Services Association and Te Arawa Returned Services League are hosting a commemoration service at the Cenotaph in Government Gardens.
All are welcome to attend and honour all those that fought for us. Please gather at the Cenotaph at 10:30am with proceedings beginning at 10:40am.
Earlier in the year, ANZAC commemorations were held virtually due to the COVID-19 lockdown so this is a great opportunity to come together and honour our fallen soldiers.
One hundred and one years ago, on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, the First World War finally came to an end with the signing of an Armistice between the Allied Powers and Germany.
Ka maumahara tonu tātau ki a rātau. We will remember them
