(21-04-17) Anzac Day 2017

Apr 21, 2017 | Front Page Feature, News

Lest we forget.

Our current freedom and standard of living has been preserved because of the sacrifice of so many. The North Burnett Regional Council and members of the Returned Services League (RSL) Sub-Branch urge all residents to attend an Anzac Day service to express their support and appreciation for what has been secured for our Nation.

Tuesday, April 25 is a public holiday proclaimed by the Commonwealth Government. The Anzac Day dawn service remembers the time and circumstances of the landing of the first Australian and New Zealand troops at Gallipoli and their heroic sacrifice.

North Burnett Regional Council Mayor Rachel Chambers said Anzac Day is an opportunity to pause and remember those who have served our country during times of conflict and crisis, and to reflect upon their selfless sacrifice.

“Attending an Anzac Day service allows us to come together in an act of solidarity to show support and appreciation to those who have served and died in war and on operational service. On this day we also commemorate the spirit of the Anzac, those unique qualities of courage, mateship, and sacrifice.”

“I encourage as many people (residents and visitors alike) to attend an Anzac Day service to show your support,” Mayor Chambers said.
