Anzac Day services for McMillan

16x517-ANZAC-FBTile

The Anzac Centenary runs from 2014 to 2018 and marks 100 years since Australia’s involvement in the First World War.

It is the most significant period of commemoration in our nation’s history.

It also recognises Australians who have served our country in other wars, conflicts and on peace operations over the past 100 years – the Century of Service.

I encourage everyone in McMillan to attend a service this Anzac Day, or at least to take the time to pause and reflect on the sacrifice of those who gave their lives in the service of our country.

Lest we forget.

*McMillan has many Anzac Day services. Below is a list of those I have been made aware of through our local shire councils and newspapers.

Aberfeldy Cemetery service
Time: 12.00pm.
Location: Aberfeldy Cemetery, Donnelly's Creek Road, Aberfeldy.

Darnum service
Time: 10.00am.
Location: War Memorial, Darnum Public Hall, Cropley Street, Darnum.

It's been a busy but productive few days travelling around McMillan.

Thanks to all those people I've had the good fortune to speak to.

On Wednesday I had the privilege of chatting to locals at Mount Best and Foster about their vision for the nation and their local communities.

Yesterday included the launch of the Warragul Salvation Army Red Shield Appeal, a fruitful meeting with Indigenous students from Community College Gippsland, a welcome invitation to the Corner Inlet Social Justice Group's Christian Ministers' Forum, a wide ranging interview with the Leongatha Star's editor Brad Lester and a Latrobe City citizenship ceremony.

Today I'll be at Sandy Point talking to local residents about a soon to be constructed mobile black spot tower, with Telstra Area General Manager Loretta Willaton, South Gippsland Shire Council Deputy Mayor Mohya Davies and Sandy Point Community Association Vice President Frank Schrever.

Tonight I have the Warragul Regional College Presentation Ball to look forward to.

Next week it's back to Canberra.

With events in Drouin, Pakenham and Korumburra I was kept busy on Australia Day.

The Drouin Australia Day Breakfast was fantastic, as usual.

At Cardinia Shire Council's 2016 Australia Day Awards (Pakenham) many great local people were honoured for their selfless contributions.

In addition, many proud people took the pledge to become citizens of this great nation. The citizenship ceremony was one of more than 400 around the country - with more than 16,000 people taking the oath to become Australian yesterday.

At Korumburra I was privileged to be at the opening of Coal Creek's refurbished Anzac Room, which features an amazing interactive display dedicated to the Dawes brothers - George, Charles and Richard - who were killed in action during some of the bloodiest fighting of World War I. This important new feature tells a heart-breaking story of sacrifice, bravery and tragedy.

Their legacy - just like so many others - lives on.
