ANZAC commemorations provides us with an opportunity to remember those who have fought and served in all wars; conflicts and peace operations and especially remember the more than 100,000 who have given their lives in service.
No place is unaffected by war, the City of Playford is no exception. The story of war encompasses more than those who fought and currently serve, it includes those who remain behind. The women and men whose wives and husbands enlist, the mothers and fathers who wonder at their son or daughter’s fate, the children who miss out on having their father, mother or family around. War touches many of us and continues to do so today.
Here is how we are marking ANZAC Day in 2021:
ANZAC Commemorations: Overnight Vigil
Join us at 7.30pm on Saturday, 24 April for the Overnight Vigil opening ceremony.
Our Overnight Vigil is coordinated by local service groups including the Australian Navy Cadets, Ridley District Scouts, St John Cadets, Playford District Girl Guides, Dalkeith CFS and Multi-National Pathfinders Club.
