The Chatsworth Island Anzac sub-committee will again this year conduct a Dawn Service at the town cenotaph. Muster will be at 5.15am and the service will open at 5.30am.
The Chatsworth school captains will deliver the address during the service and piper Alister Smith of the Maclean Pipe Band will pipe the lament and the final hymn.
The sub/committee has put a lot of time and effort into making the service the success it is. From a fledging start in 2015, some sixty-six turned out last year, including a large number of young people.
Chatsworth, Ashby, Harwood, Wombah and the surrounding district paid a high price in casualties during WW1 & WW2. We invite your attendance again this year and if you wish to lay a family tribute upon the cenotaph please call Roger Jones on 0407 299 370 or email; email@example.com to enable us to include you in the programme.
… the Independent would like to ask for your support. The community is reading our paper more than ever and embracing the content we produce, but advertising revenues across the media as a whole, are falling. Unlike other news organizations we do not charge for our publication – so, to keep our community connected and deliver the local news to your door we would like to ask for your help..... to keep the Independent bringing you all the local community news takes a lot of time, hard work and people power, But we do it because we believe our presence matters – who else tells it how it is, where it is, and what it is.
If you like our journalism, if you like the community news, if you like our sports coverage we would love it if you could help fund it, our future may depend on it.
For as little as $5, you can support the Independent – Thank you.
