This year's Port Macquarie Remembrance Day service will be held indoors.
The RSL sub-Branch has moved the Wednesday November 11 event from the cenotaph to the Panthers Port Macquarie auditorium.
Sub-Branch president Greg Laird OAM says the decision was taken to ensure more people could attend.
"We would have been restricted to just 100 people if we held the event outdoors at the cenotaph," he said.
"And how would you monitor the numbers attending? It would be too problematic.
"By taking the event to Panthers we have the capacity of hosting 150 people, and we will abide by the restrictions put in place by the club."
Those attending the auditorium event need to register to attend, he added.
The service will include wreath laying and traditional address.
"The wreaths from the auditorium will be transferred to the cenotaph," he added.
Anyone not attending the Panthers auditorium event is welcome to visit the cenotaph - where the flag will be flying at half mast - to lay a wreath.
Mr Laird said he encouraged schools, community, sports and social clubs to continue to visit the cenotaph throughout the day.
The RSL sub-Branch event at the Panthers auditorium starts at 11am sharp.
You must be inside the auditorium prior to the start time, Mr Laird said.
To register to attend contact the sub-Branch on 6583 2748 or Greg Laird on 0412 470 053.

The Wauchope RSL sub-Branch is not hosting an official gathering at the cenotaph this year.
President Mick Brownlow said residents are encouraged to attend the cenotaph throughout the day.
All COVID-19 protocols must be observed at the cenotaph, he said.
"We encourage people to go along to the cenotaph, lay a wreath while adhering to social distancing requirements," he said.
Sub-Branch members and their partners will be gathering for a private event at the Wauchope RSL Club.
Laurieton RSL sub-Branch spokesperson Ian Jackson said the flags will be flown at the cenotaph throughout the day.
He said clubs and the public can still pay their respects.
"We encourage everyone that would like to lay a wreath to go down to the cenotaph at any time through the day to lay a wreath," he said.
"You would be most welcome to do so."
Meanwhile the RSL aged care home, Arthur Blackburn VC Gardens will host a remembrance day service with a year 12 bugler playing to residents.
The service is outside and residents will be able to enjoy the service from their verandahs.
