Heritage Support Committee chair of Mornington RSL Colin Fisher was MC and provided a wonderful dedication ceremony of the avenue.
Bronze plaques giving information about avenues of honour, and particularly Mornington and district’s, were installed and the Schools of the area were all represented and marched the Avenue of Honour in respect .

“This project has been driven by Mornington RSL as a joint RSL, Mornington Peninsula Shire and Rotary project,” Mr Fisher said. “It was financed by contributions from the Briars Ward councillors’ discretionary spending allowances, Rotary, and from money raised by the RSL from the local community. “Donations were received in return for having engraved pavers laid in an area adjacent to the rotunda. Initial works preparing a concrete base for the pavers began on Monday.”
Mornington Yacht Club and more than 80 Mornington Peninsula companies and organisations contributed to the project, as well as 28 individuals and families. Their logos and names are displayed as another feature of the park.
