Anzac Day activities across the peninsula THERE will be 13 Anzac Day marches and services on the Mornington Peninsula. The mayor Cr Bev Colomb said the day is a time for “reflection, thankfulness and remembrance of the Anzac landings at Gallipoli”. “While Anzac Day has always been a huge day of national pride, each year reignites the community’s dedication to remembering the sacrifice so many have made for our country. “We will remember not only the original Anzacs who served at Gallipoli, but commemorate more than a century of service by Australian servicemen and women.” Anzac Day program: Balnarring 9.30am service at Balnarring Village Shopping Centre.

Parklands heeds the call RESIDENTS of Peninsula Parklands, Hastings are preparing to commemorate Anzac Day even though age may be wearying some of them. There are 340 residents at the High St retirement village and last year some of them found it physically hard to attend the town’s official Anzac

Day march and ceremonies. This year they will be at a ceremony in their own community hall, which is also being used to exhibit a display of wartime memorabilia, including medals and a set of World War I cavalry spurs worn by a soldier from Somerville.

Background music from the wartime era will help set the scene along with “original recipe” Anzac biscuits served with tea and coffee. A “Sunrise at Gallipoli” painting by Parklands’ resident artist Terry Avion will be auctioned to raise money for Hastings RSL’s welfare fund.
