80 turn out for Anzac service
GYMPIE Region’s only evening Anzac Day service once again drew a big crowd of all ages to the Wolvi and District War Memorial Hall.
More than 80 people gathered for the commemoration, including Federal Member for Wide Bay Warren Truss making his first appearance to a Wolvi service.
Member for Gympie David Gibson and Gympie regional councillors Graham Engeman and Julie Walker were also in attendance.
The Wolvi Hall Committee preceded the service with a barbecue followed by the Anzac Day service at 7pm.
This year’s service included an Australian Flag donated to the hall by Mr Truss and a New Zealand flag on loan from the New Zealand High Commission.
The Uniform Resolution was read by Wolvi State School captains Rose Gemmel and Minnie Grady and the service concluded with the school choir singing “The Last Anzac”.
A display of military memorabilia supplied by Bill Hewat was viewed with much interest by young and old alike.
