At The Monument
On this special day , ANZAC Day , 25th April 2013, we recall those men
and women who gave service to their country , who sacrificed their lives
to fight for peace in the world and freedom for mankind.
We recall the great tragedy of war and those who left our shores and never returned ,
those who still sleep in the cemeteries of Gallipoli , Palestine , France ,
the desserts of Northern Africa , Greece , the Middle East and closer
to home , New Guinea , the Pacific , Malaysia , Korea , Vietnam , Indonesia ,
Afghanistan , Iraq , East Timor and all the other unknown resting places
in every corner of the world.
We stand here together united in their memory and promise that their
sacrifice will not be forgotten and that we , as a community will work
together , to continue their memory and in our own small ways to bring
peace to our families and friends throughout our community
and to the world as a whole.

If only we could all read this and live by it.
Many local schools took part in the march to the monument , helping to keep
Anzac Day remembered through our youth.
It was wonderful to see a large crowd line the streets
