Anzac Day

ANZAC Day is a day on which we remembered Australians who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations.


We held our Annual ANZAC Day service in front of the Wagait Shire Council Cenotaph.  Thank you to all the volunteers involved who dedicated their morning to help set up for the ceremony.  It was a great pleasure to once again have our Chaplain, Major Ian Dawson return.  Thank you to the children who distributed the ANZAC biscuits and the Order of Service to the crowd.

Below are some of the images from this event.



The 100th year of the Anzac was marked with the commemoration at the crash site of the Milady at 8.30am in which approximately 30 people attended.  We thank Jack Ellis for organising this.

It was gratifying to see so many members of the community here today at the “Order of Service” and we respectfully and sincerely thank everyone for their time and participation.  This was followed by a small march to the Cox Country Club for another flag raising with refreshments, game of “Two Up” and drinks.

We would like to respectfully and sincerely thank everyone who helped with the event for your time and participation.
