Lest We Forget – Anzac Day 2009

NEW Norfolk Anzac Day observances at dawn and 11am were again well attended this year. A slightly smaller than usual parade made its way up High St shortly before 11am, arriving at Circle St for a service of commemoration. For the first time, several veterans rode in the back of an ex-army 1969 Land Rover.

Selfless sacrifice, pride in our heritage and honouring our veterans was the subject of an address by Celia Hooker from St Matthew’s Anglican Church. Mayor Tony Nicholson also spoke, and local soloist June Purkiss sang the National Anthem and the traditonal hymn O God Our Help in Ages Past, with musical accompaniment by the Derwent Valley Concert Band. New Norfolk Scouts stood at the four corners of the New Norfolk cenotaph.
