Date: Saturday 25 April, 2015

Whoever you are, wherever you are, whatever you’re doing don’t miss marking the 100 Commemoration of World War One. ANZAC Day dawn services, civic services, visits to cemeteries and getting together to remember and respect those who went to war for our country are high priority across our proud nation, and rightfully so. Check details of where you can get along and mark this next Saturday April 25. It’s the least we can do in respect of what they gave and did for our country.

There's an open invitation to anyone in the community or visiting to join any or all of these commemoration services and activities.
