Parkes commemorates Remembrance Day 2017

Parkes Shire residents paused at 11am on Saturday to remember those who lost their lives or suffered fighting for our country. 

The Last Post was played, two minutes silence observed, the names of the fallen read out, wreaths laid and the National Anthem sung at the commemoration service held in Cooke Park. 

Ex Servicemen, community members, and local school students gathered at the Cenotaph to pay their respects.
