Pay your respects on Anzac Day

Posted: 2pm 20 Apr 2021

Veterans and their families are preparing to commemorate Anzac Day with services across the region – in contrast to last year, when COVID-19 forced their cancellation.

Many of the services will be scaled back or have attendee numbers capped, and many Sub Branches are encouraging people to pay their respects from the driveways through ‘Light Up the Dawn’.
