On behalf of the Inverloch RSL Sub-Branch I would like to express my gratitude to the wider Inverloch Community for their support of the 2019 ANZAC Day services.
The support from local businesses and support clubs in the planning and lead-up to the event was outstanding.
Donations of products and services from so many contributed to a great day, which we in the RSL appreciate so much.
The attendance at both the Dawn and Commemorative Services was beyond expectations.
The Dawn Service was very well attended as was the Gunfire Breakfast, for which I thank the Lions Club for their outstanding support (again).
The Commemorative Service at The Hub was again a ‘standing room only’ event, which is great to see.
The performance of the various speakers from the schools and scouts and cubs is always so encouraging.
The ability and willingness of our younger people to stand up in front of 500-plus people to do a reading about our ANZAC heritage can only augur well for our community.
It is extremely heart-warming and appreciated by those who have served to see the fantastic community engagement from the people of Inverloch and across the region. Lest we forget.
Bob Sutton MID, Inverloch RSL Sub-Branch President.
