Anzac Day Services 2018
4th April 2018
Anzac Day is our chance to pause and remember all the men and women who have served, fought and died in defence of this great country.
Please take the opportunity on April 25 to attend a service and pay respects to all our service personnel, past and present, who have given so much for the freedom we all enjoy today.
I've compiled a list of services being held throughout the Lake Macquarie electorate, so you can find one close to you.
Meanwhile, my annual Anzac Day commemorative booklet is now at the printers and will be delivered to all homes in the electorate from April 16.
If you'd like extra copies, I'll have plenty in my Toronto electorate office. Lest we forget.
