Hornsby's ANZAC commemoration
Posted: Monday 10 April, 2017
Hornsby will pause twice this month to remember the sacrifices of the men and women who have served our nation.
On Sunday 23 April there will be a march along Peats Ferry Road beginning at 11am, then on Tuesday 25 April there will be an ANZAC Day Dawn Service beginning at 5am.
“Each year there are fewer veterans to join us at the memorial services, which makes those services ever more important,” Hornsby Shire Mayor Steve Russell said.
“We swore we would never forget everything they did for us and we are determined to fulfil that promise.
“The services were once mainly to remember those who did not return from overseas, but now they are also keeping alive the memory of those who have passed away throughout the intervening decades.
“And of course, they are also a chance to once again personally thank the servicemen and women who are still standing with us.
“We owe them a lot and this allows us to fully express our appreciation.”
Peats Ferry Road will be closed for the services between Bridge Road and George Street, from 8.30am on 23 April and from 2am on 25 April.
