Lithgow City Council Mayor, Councillor Ray Thompson, is responding to a request from the Minister for Veterans Affairs, The Honourable David Elliott, MP, for local communities across Australia to commemorate the Centenary of Armistice that marks the end of The Great War.

The Mayor would like to encourage all members of the community to stop and pause for reflection at 11am on Sunday, 11 November, for one minute, to remember our veterans who paid the ultimate sacrifice and to express gratitude for the peace and prosperity that we enjoy today.  It was at 11am on 11 November 1918, that the guns on the Western Front fell silent after more than four years of continuous warfare.

Specific branding has been produced, called the NSW Remembers Armistice logo, (as shown) can be utilised throughout the community to promote and commemorate Armistice.  The logo and branding guidelines are available for download via the link below. 

“It would be great to see members of the community whether attending a commemoration, walking down the street, listening to the radio or watching television, on public transport or in shopping centres, to come to a standstill at 11am and remember our fallen”, said Mayor Thompson.
