Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

ON be­half of the Re­turned and Serv­ing mem­bers of the com­mu­nity, I ex­tend a sin­cere thank you for your tremen­dous show of sup­port over the past weeks lead­ing up to and on April 25.

More than 400 res­i­dents at­tended the reded­i­ca­tion ser­vice of the re­fur­bished War Me­mo­rial where Mayor Phil Marks and Fed­eral Mem­ber for Swan Steve Irons un­veiled the Com­mem­o­ra­tion Plaques.

The first school com­bined ser­vice, at­tended by more than 850 stu­dents from all schools in Bel­mont plus 400 guests, teach­ers, staff and fam­ily mem­bers of the stu­dents, was a truly a mov­ing ser­vice, well run by all stu­dents in­volved and their teach­ers.

The sup­port at the Dawn Ser­vice at­tended by more than 2500 shows there is still the re­spect for those who served and are still serv­ing our coun­try to­day.

Ad­di­tional thanks to Curtin FM 100.1, WA Turf Club and the City of Bel­mont coun­cil­lors, man­age­ment, ad­min­is­tra­tive staff and out­door work­ers and staff for their con­tri­bu­tion to the cen­te­nary ser­vices at Bel­mont

Our me­mo­rial in Bel­mont is yours, to de­velop our his­tory and the present. We com­pli­ment those who un­der­took the re­fur­bish­ment,
