Central and North Burnett Times - - ANZAC DAY LIFE -

RES­I­DENTS have re­mem­bered with pride, hon­our and re­spect those who made the ul­ti­mate sac­ri­fice and the sur­vivors who re­turned from the hor­rors of war dur­ing var­i­ous Biggenden ser­vices.

At the Biggenden State School ser­vice on Mon­day morn­ing LACW Leila Dun­can told stu­dents Anzac Day was more than a public hol­i­day.

“On Anzac Day we salute not only the spirit of the An­zacs,” she said.

“In pay­ing trib­ute to them, we take the op­por­tu­nity to ded­i­cate our­selves to striv­ing for our coun­try as they did.”

After morn­ing tea the Fifth Gympie Lighthorse troupe showed their skills to de­lighted on­look­ers.

On Tues­day the Degilbo cen­topath was the venue for a mov­ing dawn ser­vice while an­other ser­vice by Moira Thomp­son was held on Mt Walsh.

As res­i­dents and vis­i­tors turned out in force for the town ser­vice Group Cap­tain Karon Mil­lett RAAF de­liv­ered the Anzac Day mes­sage.

She high­lighted the his­tory of the Anzac tra­di­tion and the legacy Aus­tralians were given.
