ANZAC Day Shellharbour City Services

17/04/2018
 
Shellharbour City Mayor Marianne Saliba is encouraging the community pay tribute to fallen soldiers on Anzac Day, Wednesday 25 April, 2018.
 
“There are several services and marches being held across the city and I encourage everyone to attend, if possible,” Cr Saliba said.
 
“This is always a solemn and special event and indeed our city had many brave soldiers who fought and died at Gallipoli. Attending a service is one way to honour them and their sacrifice.”
 
“It’s also a chance to recognise all defence personnel who have served Australia throughout many conflicts and in peacekeeping missions.”
