Families are being urged to Light Up the Dawn again this ANZAC day, Sunday, April 25, to remember veterans and those who gave lives.
Paul Garai from Castle Hill RSL Sub-branch said: “As we continue to navigate through COVID-19 health and safety restrictions, Light up the Dawn is the most reliable way to mark ANZAC Day this year. Invite your family, friends and neighbours to gather on your driveway, front yard or balcony at dawn. You can light candles (or use garden/fairy lights), fly the Australian flag, or make a display to remember those who served or are still serving in our Armed Forces.”
“Light up the Dawn was a huge success in 2020. Small neighbourhood groups gathered across the Hills and Hawkesbury with candles and lights, some also included buglers and bagpipers to add to the occasion. We hope to again see our local communities quietly gather in the pre-dawn hush across the Hills and Hawkesbury, to honour our servicemen and women. No matter how small or humble the gathering, the focal point is gathering together, to remember.”
The ABC live stream broadcast starts at 4.30am at www.youtube.com/watch?v=v96z4vHXoH4.
