ANZAC DAY 2023

ANZAC DAY 2023
25 Apr 2023

The Shire of Harvey marked ANZAC Day across four community events on Tuesday, 25 April 2023.

The Shire of Harvey community paid tribute to the brave service personnel who have served and sacrificed for Australia during the 2023 ANZAC Day commemorations.

Services were held in Binningup, Brunswick Junction, Harvey and Yarloop on Tuesday, 25 April 2023.

These services were an opportunity to reflect on the ANZAC legacy, which continues to inspire courage, mateship and bravery in new generations of Australians.

In Harvey, approximately 400 people attended the Dawn Service and wreath laying ceremony at Harvey Town Hall. 

The Service included a prayer and gospel reading by Uniting Church of Australia Reverend Mr Allan Ward, a poetry reading by Harvey Senior High School student Kailee Hernaman and a moving rendition of The Ode of Remembrance by Harvey RSL Sub Branch President Mr Eric Hall.

Attendees stood for the playing of The Last Post and the sacred one minute silence before Harvey RSL Sub Branch Member Major Laurie Fraser MBE OAM's sobering Dawn Service Address.

The tribute was followed by the Gunfire Breakfast, ANZAC March, Main Service and light luncheon.

Harvey Lions Club volunteers offered a sausage sizzle. 

The Shire of Harvey would like to thank all organisers and community members who helped keep the ANZAC Legend alive in 2023.

Lest we forget.
