Member for Goulburn Wendy Tuckerman encourages the community to attend their local Anzac Day Service to honour the service and sacrifice of the Australian Defence Force and our Veterans.
Mrs Tuckerman said it is wonderful the local community can commemorate Anzac Day this year in a responsible
and safe way.
“Many of our Anzac Day events and services will be held across the Goulburn electorate with important guidelines to adhere to. These guidelines protect the health and safety of our community, our Australian Defence Force participants but particularly our Veterans,” Mrs Tuckerman said.
Local Anzac Day events in the Goulburn electorate will take place across the region including Yass, and many of the villages.
NSW Minister for Veterans, Geoff Lee, said Anzac Day is a significant day of remembrance, stemming from the First World War and encompassing conflicts both past and present.
“It’s an opportunity for Veterans, current servicemen and servicewomen and the general public to come together and honour those who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom,” Mr Lee said.
