Community association attends Anzac service
Members of the Wagstaffe-Killcare Community Association attended the Anzac Day service at Hardys Bay Club on April 25.
"Again we were able to enjoy a splendid community recognition of Anzac Day at the Hardy's Bay Club," said association vice-president Mr Mike Allsop.
"The sunny skies were punctuated briefly at 11am by a flight of two RAAF jet trainers from Williamtown right at the beginning of proceedings, when club director Terry O'Brien, introduced Captain Simon Reay Atkinson of the RANR to officiate.
"Captain Atkinson spoke splendidly on the theme of remembering our futures while the school captains from Pretty Beach Public School, Jasper Pratt and Georgia Leigh-Jones, provided their own beautifully prepared thoughts and reflections on the meaning of the day.
"Local pastor Mr Stephen Hinks led in prayer and remembrance, while the sounds of pipe and drum added an appropriate sense of piquancy to the occasion.
"As always, a variety of wreaths were offered by local organisations and individuals, including a lovely print of the hands from the pre-school at Pretty Beach," Mr Allsop said.
