ANZAC Day - Botany Dawn Service

Ron Hoenig MP laying a wreath
That man might walk in honour and in peace,
That freedom might throughout the world survive:
Remembering that for this they gave their lives,
We bow our heads in homage and with pride.

This was the moving prayer epitomising the solemnity of the ANZAC Day "Dawn Service" at Booralee Park, Botany attended not only by our surviving heroes, their families and the families of the fallen, but more than 600 local Botany residents.

The spirit of the ANZAC's is alive and well amongst the young and old alike in recognition that to keep the world free of tyranny that has to be paid for in blood.

I thank sincerely Botany Bay City Council for continuing to host the breakfast for our heroes their families and families of the fallen. With the demise of RSL Clubs in Mascot and Botany the council made this significant event even more significant.
