Anzac Day Service 2023

Anzac Day Service


Our Anzac Service, which was held on 24 April at Liscombe House allowed our Residents to reflect on wartime. John McCrohan (Resident) kindly said the ode in service and at the end also spoke about the history of the ode”. There were tears and everyone listened to “In Flanders Field” and later “For the Fallen” were read out by staff. At the end of the service, Mandy thanked everyone for coming and asked if anyone would like to share experiences or stories of wartime. Several Residents reflected and shared sad stories of loss, but others shared funny stories that lifted the service's spirits. Abound Communities staff find it a privilege to be able to do the service for our community and honour those who have fallen, so we are free. To all who have served or continue to serve, we thank you for your service.

Lest We Forget.
