Pay your re­spects at dawn ser­vice

Isis Town and Country - - News -

ISIS RSL will mark An­zac Day with dawn ser­vices in Childers, Doobi, Ap­ple Tree Creek and Cordalba.

RSL pres­i­dent Brian Terry said the public was in­vited to at­tend any of the four ser­vices, and the civic ser­vice in Childers at 10am.

“We ac­knowl­edge their en­durance, their mate­ship, their love of coun­try and their good hu­mour. Th­ese are the hall­marks of Aus­tralian ser­vice men and women, past and present,” Mr Terry said. “To them we ex­press our grat­i­tude and our prom­ise that we will re­mem­ber them.”

The RSL will open at 8am on Satur­day though Mr Terry said al­co­hol would not be served un­til af­ter the civic ser­vice.

Childers An­zac Day pa­rade will be led by light horse me­mo­rial trooper Chris Iseppi.

Isis RSL sec­re­tary Mel Hamil­ton said Mr Iseppi’s grand­fa­ther lied about his age to serve in the 10th Aus­tralian Light Horse Reg­i­ment in the First World War.
