Bushy Park remembers

Students laying flowers at Bushy Park.
A BIGGER than usual turnout was experienced at the annual Anzac Day observance at Bushy Park today. A number of those in attendance travelled from New Norfolk and beyond, specifically to see the new monument that was unveiled earlier this month.

The service was organised by the IOOF Lodge and conducted by Salvation Army Lieutenant Jacky Laing in the hall at the Bushy Park War Memorial Swimming Pool. As part of the service, two students from Glenora District High School read the poems the had entered in the Sue Geraghty Memorial Prize.

Wreaths and sheaths were laid by representatives of various organisations including the lodge, pool and school. Many of the visitors stayed for a barbecue lunch and entertainment including card games and eightball into the afternoon.
