To mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the Great War, the Coolamon RSL plans to cover the Coolamon Cenotaph with hundreds of hand made ceramic poppies and is calling on local groups, schools and organisations to assist by making poppies.
The RSL Sub Branch will provide all materials to make, paint and fire the poppies.   Anyone in the community is encouraged to help by making poppies and opportunities will be available through street stalls in September.   Members of the public will be invited to make and paint a poppy which will then be fixed to the cenotaph prior to the 11th November and will remain on the Cenotaph until the end of November.
 
The poppy is recognised as the symbol of remembrance and grows freely throughout the battlefields of France were many young men from Coolamon and District lie, casualties of the Great war.

The Coolamon RSL Sub Branch is keen to ensure that the 100th Anniversary of the end of the war is appropriately commemorated in Coolamon and wants to involve the entire community in the commemoration.   By making a poppy, the community, schools and groups can be part of this significant anniversary.

Information regarding the making of poppies can be obtained from Secretary of the Coolamon RSL Sub Branch, Angela McCann on 69272379 or 0428273525.
