ANZAC Day in Willaura

A large crowd attended ANZAC Day commemorations in Willaura, which began with a 9am Stand To at the Cenotaph.
Children from the Willaura Kindergarten and Willaura Primary School took part, and then the Hamilton Pipe Band led a march to the Memorial Hall for the service there.
Guest Speaker, Pam Cupper OAM, spoke movingly of the loss of young men on the World War 1 battlefields. 
She noted specifically the experiences of several from Willaura who enlisted, only to lose their lives in Gallipoli and France, and remain forever buried in unmarked graves.
