Taree RSL Sub-branch will begins its fundraising project on Friday, October 11 in the lead-up to Remembrance Day.
All funds raised from the sale of badges, poppies and memorabilia, and raffle tickets, will aid local veterans.
"Everything we raise here will stay here," sub-branch secretary Ted Hill said.
Two bronze figurines are the prizes in this year's raffle. One is of a modern day soldier and the other 'The Waler's Mate', a tribute to the Australian Light Horse. The Waler is a horse bred for Australian conditions, used by stockmen and regarded as "the backbone" of the Australian Light Horse.
The sub-branch will be selling Remembrance Day poppies and memorabilia at three locations in Taree in the leadup to Remembrance Day. Stalls will be located at Taree Central shopping centre, Centrepoint Arcade and Bunnings on Fridays and Saturdays, October 11 and 12, 18 and 19, 25 and 26, and November 1 and 2, and 8 and 9.
Memorabilia will also be for sale in the foyer of Club Taree on Fridays, November 1 and 8.
The Taree Remembrance Day service will be held at the Club Taree memorial on Monday, November 11.
The raffle will be draw at Club Taree after the service.
Taree RSL sub-branch members were along those from across the Lower North Coast who attended a training session in July to prepare them to re-launch their fundraising. This followed RSL NSW's decision to lift a ban on fundraising that had been in place since August 2017.
