Central Otago Mirror - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Our team had the ab­so­lute priv­i­lege of at­tend­ing some of the many An­zac Day cer­e­monies around our re­gion last week.

There are so few World War II vet­er­ans still alive and able to par­tic­i­pate, and we en­joyed shar­ing many of their sto­ries on­line.

We were im­pressed by the large num­bers of young peo­ple and fam­i­lies at­tend­ing the var­i­ous cer­e­monies, in­di­cat­ing the sig­nif­i­cance and mean­ing it has for them. It is so im­por­tant to have some un­der­stand­ing of the hor­rors of war if we are to have the re­solve to avoid it in fu­ture.

Last week’s dead­lines made it im­pos­si­ble for us to share the sto­ries in the Mir­ror, so we have in­cluded some of those sto­ries this week - see pages 16 and 18.

How­ever, our sto­ries are al­ways avail­able to our read­ers on­line at stuff.co.nz and shared on our Facebook page (Queen­stown, Cen­tral Otago and Wanaka News) and via your Neighbourly page. See you there!
