ANZAC Centenary

Today was the centenary of the ANZAC remembrance day, this year marks 100 years since Australian World War I personnel joined the Western Front campaign. We were up very early at 4:15am to go along to the dawn ceremony on Terrigal beach. The esplanade at Terrigal was full with over 3000 people of all ages attending the ceremony around the memorial stone on Terrigal esplanade. It culminated with a symbolic landing of ANZAC troops from boats onto Terrigal beach.

To remember those that did not return home the “Poppy Project” created a POPPY installation at the Skillion at Terrigal spelling out the word Anzac. More than 60,000 poppies were made by Central Coast volunteers from all sorts of groups, organisations, individuals and schools helping to create the installation. Susan and Alice contributed to making some of the poppies over the weeks leading up to ANZAC day.
