Speaking on behalf of the Ballina RSL sub-branch, Dick Wills BEM has announced that there will be no public commemoration service in Ballina for Remembrance Day next month.
Mr Wills said that with ‘some degree of emotion and sadness’ he regretfully advised that ‘due to the current COVID-19 climate and the restrictions in place, the Ballina RSL sub-branch will not be holding a public commemoration service at the Ballina RSL Memorial, for Remembrance Day on Thursday, 11 November 2021.’
He noted that the Ballina RSL Memorial Park on Grant Street remained available for the public’s private commemorative purposes to pay their respects, and for people to place a wreath or floral tribute at any time.
‘The Ballina RSL sub-Branch thanks you for your participation in previous Remembrance Day Commemorations and we look forward to your continued support in the coming years,’ said Mr Wills.
‘We will remember them – lest we forget.’
