The Centenary of Anzac 2014 – 2018 is a time of great national significance for Australia. As a community in Higgins we will be able to reflect upon the First World War and its impact, both on the lives of past Australians and their families, and our nation’s identity. The spirit of the Anzac generation is of course one that defines our nation with their courage, bravery, mateship, determination and sacrifice.
Throughout this four year period it will be important to commemorate the many landmark moments over the period of the Great War in Parliament, and at national and local ceremonies. We will have a chance to honor all servicemen and servicewomen that have fought to defend Australia and the freedoms we continue to enjoy today.
To allow the each community to properly commemorate this significant moment in our history the Federal Government has made available grants to local organisations. There will also be a number of events across the Higgins electorate. These will be led here in Higgins by a combined Higgins Stonnington Community Anzac Centenary March and Ceremony on Sunday 19 April 2015.
