A reminder that this year’s Anzac Day celebrations in Gordonton are on Tuesday 25 April.
“Everyone is invited, and it’s an occasion where people can come together and share in a communal sense of remembrance,” Keith Jellyman said.
The service starts at 10am, and will involve a remembrance in the Gordonton hall and a wreath laying service at the memorial outside. The guest speaker is Mr T K Parone, who served in the NZ Army for 26 years.
“Following that there will be a finger food morning tea, which folk can contribute to. People are welcome to make wreaths and place them on the cenotaph. There will be poppies for sale and a donation box to defray costs, with any left-over going to the RSA.”
The service has been organised by members from St Mary’s Church and WEC Oaks.
