Brisk dawn for crowds honouring our Anzacs
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.”
