Tassie supports Victorian truckies wall
OUR congratulations to the committees of both the Victorian Truck Drivers Memorial and the Tassie Truckies Memorial Wall.
Both have done so much for their communities in establishing enduring and permanent memorials in each state, and they have maintained such a close relationship with each other that is to everyone's betterment!
Tony Whitehouse is looking forward to flying out Friday with Adam Hodgetts and Jonathan Price to show support from the Tassie Truckies Memorial Wall at the Victorian Truck Drivers Memorial.
The fourth Anniversary of the Victorian Truck Drivers Memorial wall approaches with the dedication and blessing of the honour roll and families of those newly commemorated at 2pm on Saturday June 11 at Rotary Park in Alexandria.
Victorian Truck Drivers Memorial wall founder Bette Phillips informed us that in addition to the Tasmanian contingent, Liz Martin, the Patron, along with Pam and Doug McMillan representing the Australian Truck Drivers Memorial at Tarcutta will be attending along with Toll Senior Chaplain Ruth Oakden who will bless the names on the Wall on the day with Jayne Denham singing at the service.
Bette tells us that they have reserved a larger room for the annual lunch prior to the service, at the Mt Pleasant Hotel and they hope all those will join them at the venue.
There will also be a concert on the Friday night with a well-known line-up of singers including Adam Harvey, which promises to be a top night.
The following day, Sunday June 12, will see the holding of the Alexandra Truck Rod and Ute Show, so a good weekend should be had by all.
Recently Russell Davey, from the C.M.V. Hallam Truck Centre presented a token of generous support and commitment to Steve Costley from Alexandra Truck Rod and Ute Show and Bette Phillips-Campbell on behalf of the Victorian Truck Drivers Memorial.
Bette expressed her delight at this commitment from the CMV group to continue their support and form an ongoing relationship.
