Anzac Day Sevice & Bowls Tournament

A solemn and respectful tribute to our fallen was held on the Keith Free Green on ANZAC Day this year. The last Post, laying of the wreath and spoken tributes to our fallen was witnessed by Men’s and women’s bowlers and members of the local community. It was wonderful to see so many participate and pay homage.

The ceremony was followed by a wonderful afternoon of bowls with Burwood Diggers and others. My thanks to all who attended and congratulations to the Divisional winners but most importantly to all who attended.

A special thanks to Wayne Comber, Bob Meyer and Rob Goldberg for the organisation of the day.
