Enjoying time with family and reflecting on our ANZAC past
I hope everyone took the opportunity over the Easter break from our day to day demands to spend time with family and friends, and of course enjoy a few Easter eggs.
It is not often we get a chance to stop and reflect on the privileged and prosperous communities we live in and enjoy our unique way of life in regional NSW.
As we approach ANZAC Day I hope residents throughout regional NSW have the opportunity to attend a commemoration service in honour of those who served, fought and died for our great country.
It has been over a century since the first commemoration of the tragic military campaign on the beaches of Gallipoli which was a pivotal and defining moment in the nation’s development.
In our often busy daily lives it’s all too easy to lose sight of the fact that the freedom we take for granted every day is because of the bravery of our armed forces.
Each year I look forward to standing alongside the community at local services throughout the region to honour the men and women who have served and continue to serve.
I am looking forward to attending the ANZAC Day dawn service in Braidwood in my home electorate before attending the ANZAC Day service in Queanbeyan.
I hope everyone finds a meaningful way to remember the diggers that fought and served in Gallipoli over 100 years ago and the servicemen and women that help protect our unique way of life.
