New Burpengary memorial to hold ANZAC ceremony
ANZAC Day is a time of remembrance; for two nations to look back on the past and show respect for the brave men who died during our World War I campaign at Gallipoli.
In 2015, residents of real estate in Burpengary will have the chance to participate in a ceremony at a new monument in Buchanan Park, which will be held in honour of the events centenary.
Moreton Bay Regional Council's Division Two councillor Peter Flannery said that the local community never had a memorial up until now, but this new landmark – completed just before the 100 year ANZAC celebration – would be the perfect place to hold the service.
"The ANZAC memorial at Burpengary will bring our community together in remembrance and celebration of the contribution of local men and women, past and present, who have served our country not only in times of conflict but also peace," said Mr Flannery in a 13 April statement.
The morning of 25 April will begin with veterans marching to the site at 10 a.m., followed by a memorial service at 10:30 a.m. This could provide locals with a wonderful opportunity to participate in the event, so be sure to head on down on the day and pay your respects.
