Big crowd for dawn service

The parade arrives at the Cenotaph for the Dawn Service today.
ABOUT 1000 people attended the Centenary of Anzac Dawn Service in New Norfolk this morning, one of the biggest turnouts in many years.

Parade marshall Dale Britten said about 120 people had marched from the RSL Club  in George St, via Tank St, to the Cenotaph in Circle St, where a big crowd of onlookers was waiting. Mr Britten said there were about 1000 people in the audience and others said it was the biggest crowd they had seen at a dawn service.
