Campbelltown will come together to honour the local men and women whose lives were lost at war during the city’s Anzac Day celebrations on Monday 25 April.
From 8.30am, local veterans and current servicemen and servicewomen will be joined by school students for the Anzac Day veterans’ march along Queen Street before the Commemorative Ceremony held by the Campbelltown RSL Sub Branch at Mawson Park from 9am.
“Anzac Day is a solemn day across Australia and is felt strongly here in Campbelltown where many people served in wars such as World War I and II, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan as well as many other conflicts across the world,” Mayor George Greiss said.
“It is a day to honour those who have fallen, but also those who returned and are still serving or are part of our community today,” Cr Greiss said.
“I strongly encourage everyone to get out and support our veterans as they complete a full march down Queen Street,” he said.
A dawn service will also be held at 5.30am at Mawson Park to commemorate the dawn landings of the Anzacs at Gallipoli during World War I.
The Ingleburn RSL Sub Branch will hold a parade at 4.45am from Warbler Avenue to the Ingleburn RSL Memorial Garden where the dawn service will start from 5am.
