Club Grandviews Anzac Ceremony

Mr MARK COURE (Oatley)

—Speaker, ANZAC Day is truly one of the most important days of the year. It is an opportunity to honour and recognise those who have given so much for the freedoms we enjoy as a nation today. I would like to thank the Board of Directors from Club Grandviews, who recently hosted a moving service to remember the sacrifices of our brave servicemen and women in various wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations. Not only was it wonderful to meet with veterans and their families, but also to see the number of people from my community who attended the service. It truly is heartening to witness such a strong display of respect and remembrance for our ANZACs. I would like to thank General Manager of Club Grandviews, Nathan Buhagiar, Club President, Alex Fotheringham, as well as the entire Board of Directors who helped to make this event such a success. I believe that it is so important to acknowledge the resilience, mateship, and legacy of the ANZACs and this is something I hope to do for many more years to come. Lest we forget.
