LINE up, take your stance and be sure not to flinch as the hot end of the branding iron sizzles and leaves its mark.
It takes something special to mark an occasion as momentous as 150 years and for the township of Freestone, branding irons will do the trick.
Freestone 150th committee member Steve Turner said the idea of the branding post was about creating another piece of history.
"It is for anyone to burn their brand on and we are encouraging past and currently-used brands," Mr Turner said.
"We are hoping one of the oldest brands will be from about the 1880s and it is one that is still used by the same family.
"We see the branding post as something to be there all the time for today's and tomorrow's residents to remind them of what we did on the day.
"It will be a good example of a time stamp."
Helper to the committee Sue Keong said the branding board concept had been well received.
"It is a great idea and we have had a lot of interest from present and past residents of Freestone that want to be involved," she said.
"We are also trying to put together a board with all the names and brands to go inside the hall."
Mr Turner said the idea of having a branding post was not a new one.
"The thought has been around for a couple of years but we only started putting it together about six weeks ago," he said.
"In all honesty I think the branding post will now outlast the hall."
The branding post will be open for branding all day but will be officially unveiled by local member Lawrence Springborg between 11.30am and noon.
The price to brand your mark on history is $20 a person.
