Memorial unveiled

CLOSE to a hundred people attended the official unveiling of a new memorial at Dobie on Sunday to honour soldiers from the First World War.
The memorial is the work of a small committee of volunteers, who’ve worked tirelessly over recent months transforming the Dobie Highway Park.
The volunteers secured $6,000 funding from Ararat RSL and Pacific Hydro to erect a memorial stone containing the names of 24 soldiers who served in the First World War, as well as landscaping, seating and an impressive entrance sign.
The memorial park replaces Dobie’s Avenue of Honour, which has been impacted by the duplication of the Western Highway.
