ANZAC Day is arguably one of Australia’s most important national holidays and it gives us all the time to reflect on the sacrifices that were made by our brave soldiers during the First World War, and that are still made by our defence forces today.
If you want to help show your ANZAC spirit this year, you can do so be attending tomorrrow’s ANZAC Day march or the dawn service being held this Wednesday.
The march will be starting from the Bacchus Marsh Hospital at 2pm and finishing at the Bacchus Marsh RSL on Main Street. The parade will include a wreath-laying service to honour the Diggers and there will also be refreshments available at the shire hall afterwards.
On ANZAC Day there will be a dawn service at the cenotaph which will start at 5.45am and this will be followed by a breakfast prepared by SES volunteers.
If you can’t make an ANZAC Day memorial service though, it’s important that we take some time on ANZAC DAY, no matter how busy our lives are, to simply take a minute’s silence where we can think about how lucky we are to have the freedoms and way of life we have in Australia today.
Lest We Forget.
