Brisk dawn for crowds hon­our­ing our An­zacs

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS ANZAC DAY -

IT WAS a frosty Anzac Day morn­ing for those who at­tended Anzac Day dawn ser­vices.

At­ten­dees sung hymns and laid wreaths to com­mem­o­rate sol­diers past and present.

North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil Mayor Rachel Cham­bers, who at­tended the Monto ser­vice, said we should not for­get the ser­vice­men and women fight­ing for Aus­tralia to­day.

“War is fought to ei­ther bet­ter our way of life or pro­tect it,” Cr Cham­bers said.

The dawn ser­vice in Mun­dub­bera in­volved hun­dreds of peo­ple who turned up ready to march and to hon­our the fallen sol­diers.

In Mun­dub­bera, about 100 res­i­dents braved the early-morn­ing con­di­tions to march to the ceno­taph at 5am.

Pres­i­dent of the Mun­dub­bera RSL John Od­gen said the turnout from the com­mu­nity was good.

“It went very well. We had a lot of peo­ple turn up this morn­ing,” Mr Od­gen said.

“Lots of peo­ple went to the cemetery, we had a short ser­vice and laid a wreath and did the Last Post.”
