Living Choice Kawana Island residents gathered in the Auditorium on the 25th of April to honour and reflect on the past sacrifices the ANZAC’s made.
In recent years, ANZAC Day has taken on a new significance, as the last surviving ANZAC soldiers have passed away. The day is now a time to remember all those who have served in the armed forces of Australia and New Zealand, including those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. It is a day to reflect on the values of courage, mateship and sacrifice that are embodied by the ANZAC soldiers, and to honour their legacy.
The morning was organised by Chairman David Thomas and his ANZAC committee members. The bus was available to transport residents to the Kawana RSL for those who wanted to attend the Dawn service. Following on from the Dawn service, the village had their own service at the Leisure Centre with Jake Jacobsen as MC.
A traditional breakfast was provided to everyone, along with raffles throughout the morning to support Legacy Sunshine Coast.
Thank you to all the helpers who contributed to the day.
