Mullumbimby ANZAC Day Dawn Service and March will be taking place this Wednesday, 25 April and everyone is welcome to attend this or the main service.
‘The significant thing is that 100 years ago we went to war to support an Empire and a white Australia,’ said Paul Smith, president of the Mullumbimby sub-branch of the RSL.
‘Now we are a multi-cultrual society who support self-determination here and anywhere we can in the world. The ANZAC spirit has been constant but what it seeks to preserve now has changed along with the values of our society.’
The Dawn Service will begin at 4.30am at the Cenotaph opposite the Mullumbimby ex-services club while people gathering for the main service are asked to gather just before 11am at the Cenotaph.
