We Will Remember Them
"At the going down of the sun,
and in the morning,
We will remember them"
Our local Remembrance Day service was held today at Templestowe Memorial Park (corner of Foote and High Street).
This site is of special significance to our club. In 1990, we worked with the Council and the Templestowe Returned Services League to relocate the First World War Memorial from its original site in Anderson St to the current location. The Council had renamed the reserve "Services Memorial Park" to honour the men and women of the armed forces who fought in all wars since Federation, and also to honour members of local service organisations who have contributed to the quality of life in our city.
Every year on ANZAC Day, we run the local Schools ANZAC Service to give local primary and secondary students an opportunity to be a part of the remembrance. Members of the public are welcomed to participate - you can find out more details at https://templestowerotary.org.au/anzac-service.
