Observe the 101st anniversary of the end of World War I

November 11 will commemorate the end of World War I.

At 11am the guns on the Western Front fell silent, after four years of bloody fighting in which a generation of young men disappeared into the mud, the sea, and the dust.

Australia lost more than 60,000 people and 120,000 were wounded, from a country of around four and a half million.

The Crookwell RSL Sub Branch is holding a Remembrance Day Commemorative Service at Memorial Park on Monday, November 11 from 10.30am.

The bell at St Mary's Catholic Church will sound at 11am. This will coincide with the Last Post, followed by the playing of the Rouse.

Students and faculty from St Mary's Primary School, Crookwell, Binda and Laggan Public Schools, and Crookwell High School will represent the area's youth.

At 11am pause for a minute, wherever you are, in memory of those people who served in all wars and conflicts.

Following the service, the Crookwell Country Women's Association will serve morning tea - a hot drink and ANZAC biscuits - at the CWA rooms on Spring Street, for $5 per person.

The proceeds will go towards Soldier On's continued support for service personnel and their families adversely impacted in or as a result of service to their nation and to help secure their futures.
