LEETON'S long-running history of assisting returned servicemen and women was recognised at a recent milestone event.
The Leeton RSL Sub-branch marked its 100th anniversary, while the women's auxiliary, now known as just the auxiliary, celebrated its 70th anniversary.
The two milestones were reflected on during a special night, which included many heartfelt moments, according to Leeton RSL Sub-branch president John Power.
Mr Power said the members of the Ozy Youth Choir, which honours defence service, were on hand to sing, while various dignitaries also attended from RSL NSW.
"There was also a special table of remembrance set aside for those who couldn't be there ... there were many times during the night where there wasn't a dry eye in the house," he said.
"The choir were spectacular. They all traveled to take part.
"There was a lot of history spoken about and memories shared."
There were also memorabilia displays and a special cake made replicating Leeton's cenotaph, which was a metre tall.
The Leeton RSL Sub-branch and the auxiliary will hold a street stall on Friday in Pine Avenue, selling badges ahead of Remembrance Day on Monday.
A short service will be held at the cenotaph, getting underway just before 11am.
Motorists have been asked to be mindful of the time when in the main street area on Monday and should stop at the roundabout at 11am when the minute silence is observed.
