We warmly invite you to our 21st annual Time for Remembering ceremony
12 pm | Sunday 21 November 2021
Queen's Hall, Parliament House, Melbourne
Time for Remembering is an occasion to come together to commemorate loved ones lost and injured on our roads, give thanks for those who survived and pay tribute to all who work tirelessly to reduce the road toll and connect with others.
You are invited to bring a photo of your loved one or other symbol of remembrance to the ceremony.
Refreshments will follow the ceremony.
Due to government guidelines, all guests must register prior to arrival at Parliament House. The event is free and open to the whole community. Please allow sufficient time to pass through a security checkpoint before entering the building. Numbers are strictly limited. Please email us if you have any mobility or dietary requirements.
At this stage, we plan to hold the event at Queen's Hall, Parliament House, but this could change in line with any COVID-19 related restrictions. If we cannot proceed at Queen's Hall, we will hold the ceremony online as we did in 2020. We will contact you closer to the event to confirm the details.
Time for Remembering has been held at Parliament House on the third Sunday in November, the World Day of Remembrance for Road Trauma Victims since 2001. It allows attendees to commemorate the lives of loved ones lost on our roads, celebrates their lives and gives thanks for those who survived. It is also an opportunity to pay tribute to those agencies and individuals who work tirelessly to reduce the road toll and the associated trauma and grief.
Jeanette Suhr lost her 19-year-old daughter Tanya to a road crash in December 1991, a trauma that still impacts her every day. In her story below, Jeanette talks about how vital our Time for Remembering ceremony is for her. Thank you to Victoria Police for allowing us to share this video.
