In what was a moving ceremony, the Breakfast Point community have come together to mark the 100 year ANZAC day memorial at the Breakfast Point village green.
The dawn service has become an annual event at Breakfast Point, which unifies the community on a day that means so much for Australians. The service reflected particularly on the contribution of the war efforts by the AGL employees who worked on the land that Breakfast Point now stands.
The service which was opened with an introduction by Don McKenzie who was followed by Greg Maunsell & Bill Cowham who reflected on the hardship of war with mention to past locals that were involved. Many of these men lived local to Breakfast Point, with some of their relatives even there to attend.
The wreath laying ceremony followed with the beautiful wreaths representing
Korea & Malaya,
Peacekeeping, Iraq and Afghanistan
The intimate occasion was shared with many Breakfast Point locals as well as for the wider community, placing Breakfast Point at the centre of remembrance for the wider Inner West community.
The occasion saw Legacy make hand knitted wearable poppies with a small gold donation. The traditional Anzac cookies handed out with compliments Breakfast Point Realty were also very well received.
Through a sense of unity for all those who attended, the service paid tribute to all those that have lost their lives in war efforts in a sentimental and moving ceremony as we remember the landing at Gallipoli, now 100 years on.
