Change the date
I am a World War II veteran and I think it is a disgrace that people vote to have a community function, the Oyster Festival, on a date that clashes with a very sacred date, especially the 100th year of the commemoration of Armistice Day, November 11, 1918.
Some 62,000 Australian soldiers gave up their lives to try and make the world a better place for us all to live in.
Just think, that's about twice the number of the population on the Peninsula, how disgusting.
So please vote to change the date.
