ANZAC Day Moruya RSL will be conducting a Dawn Service Commencing at 5.45am.
This year being the United Nations Year of Indigenous Language, we will commence our program with the playing of the didgeridoo by the internationally renowned Roderick Slockee.
Roderick has played for the Queen, Desmond Tutu, Governor General and many other dignitaries.
He has also played at the War Memorial Dawn Service.
The Ode will be given in Dhurga the local tribal language by Trish Ellis.
Trish is a TAFE NSW Aboriginal Coordinator.
She was awarded the Bruce Kendall Award for Recognition of Service to TAFE NSW.
Our march will commence at 11am, along the Princess Highway from Shore Street to Mirabooka Avenue to the Memorial Hall in Page Street, where the service will be held.
This year we are having students from local high schools carry the flags and will be joined in the march by students from our local primary schools.
Another project that we are undertaking this year is "Honour Our Fallen".
This is where the graves and plaques of ex service personnel will have the Australian Flag placed on each of them, just before and after Anzac Day.
Moruya Cemetery is being covered by students from Moruya High School and the Broulee Crematorium by students from Carrol College.
To date we have identified over 200 graves in the local area.
