Tassie community honours drivers

JONO Price, Tony Whitehouse and Adam Hodgetts - who are better known as the Wall Committee - thanked all of those who helped in so many ways throughout the year for their contributions to the Tassie Truckers Memorial Wall.

The upcoming celebration of the wall's fourth year will be held on January 20, with the service at noon at the Epping Forest Roadhouse.

Celebrations will include the installation of about 20 new plaques, as well as live music, face painting and a jumping castle for the children.

Limited merchandise will also be available for purchase.

The Reverend Peter Garwood will give the traditional blessing, and a lone piper will play while people pay their respects at the wall.

Volunteers to assist with parking will also be most welcomed, and if anyone could donate some potted colour on the day, could you please drop them off at the Roadhouse.

Organisers said they looked forward to seeing everyone there, quietly honouring those whose plaques adorn this fitting memorial, catching up with old friends, or simply enjoying the camaraderie.

There will be the traditional get-together afterwards at the Perth pub for tea at 6.30pm, book with the hotel, or through one of the committee members.
