RSA calls for families

The Warkworth RSA is asking all descendants of World War I soldiers from the Mahurangi region to attend the Armistice Day Centenary.

The event will be held at the band rotunda on November 11, from 10.30am onwards, with anthems, wreath laying and speeches.

Around 250 men from Mahurangi fought in World War I and 65 were killed. A lunch will be held after the event for veterans and invited guests. Descendants can also attend for $30 each, but must call the RSA to book ahead on 425 8568.
