This day was set as a National public holiday in 1999 to commemorate the loss of Vanuatu’s first Prime Minister and founder and Father of Independence, late Father Walter Hayde Lini. In the capital, Port Vila, our national leaders attend the Lini memorial service at the Anglican Church Parish at Tagabe where a memorial church service usually takes place followed by laying of wreaths at the Lini memorial stone, speeches by national leaders followed by public lunch.
