It is that time of year again, where we remember. We remember those who fought to maintain the freedoms that we have today. There are many Anzac Day services being held in our local area, including on alternate days for those who work in industries that prevent attendance at a Dawn Service. Please join us in remembering those who have served and those who have fallen – our ANZACs.
