Anzac Day in New Norfolk
There were several innovations in this year's program, including a Bible reading by St Brigid's School student Prue Huntington and singing by the Derwent Valley Choir to accompany the Derwent Valley Concert Band. Addresses were given by celebrant Celia Hooker and Captain Cameron McDougall of the 12th/40th Battalion.
In addition to the large crowd there was a strong contingent of politicians, led by the Federal Member for Lyons, Dick Adams MHR. Craig Farrell MLC represented the State Government and Mark Shelton MHA represented the State Opposition. Also present were the mayor and several Derwent Valley councillors.
