LEST WE FORGET

LEST WE FORGET

Grovers turned out in record numbers for Anzac Day on Friday. Over 1,000 people packed the Ocean Grove Park for the annual Dawn Service, the first of many to come at the new location of the cenotaph. “Everything went perfectly. Everyone was able to spread out in the park and I had many comments passed onto me about how quiet and peaceful it was and how no traffic was heard, just the birds,” John Dickinson from the Ocean Grove Barwon Heads RSL sub-branch said. Although numbers were less at the main service, many were pleased with how the day went. “The marching band did well  in lifting spirits, doing a wonderful job like they always do. It was also great to involve the Newcomb School Band, who will be back for next year. Fridays success reminds us just how big the centenary next year will be. It will be absolutely huge. ” John Dickinson added.
