Twin Waters residents honour the ANZACs

Residents at Living Choice Twin Waters came together on ANZAC Day to reflect on the values of courage, mateship and sacrifice that are embodied by the ANZAC soldiers, and to honour their legacy. Resident Peter Tomlinson reports.

 

Our ANZAC Day breakfast was a well-attended gathering that blended the solemnity of the occasion with the spirit of the village community.

Residents proudly came together to commemorate the day. It was a respectful gathering of friends and neighbours to honour and respect the memory of those who gave their lives in service to their country.

Bev Jerdan read a Noel Coward poem “Lie in the dark and listen” and Peter Jerdan recalled how the spirit of the ANZACs started and then grew into WW2 and later conflicts.

The Last Post was played and a respectful minute of silence was followed by Reveille. Peter then recited `The Ode To The Fallen…Lest we forget’.

After the formalities, residents sat down to a hearty breakfast prepared and served by the willing hands of Thelma, Sue, Jean, Irena, Patrick, Frank and Pete.
