Myrtleford Times - - Anzac Day -

BRIGHT’S An­zac Day cer­e­monies have again drawn larger crowds than in pre­vi­ous years.

Wed­nes­day’s march ahead of the main ser­vice was a high­light af­ter hav­ing to be can­celled be­cause of rain in pre­vi­ous years.

The main ser­vice was sup­ported by the catafalque party from the Al­bury/ Wodonga Mil­i­tary area, the Wodonga Brass, the Bright Singers and Sing Aus­tralia, Bright.

The Sec­re­tary of the Bright RSL, gave a mov­ing ad­dress which was fol­lowed by guest speaker Cap­tain Roger Turner RN (Ret’d). ALL FIN­ISHED: Catafalque party mem­bers leave the clock tower at the end of Wed­nes­day’s ser­vice. PHOTO: Jean-Pierre Ronco
