Anzac Day 2019: Hundreds gathered at Dawesville dawn service

Hundreds of locals flocked to the Dawesville War Memorial for the 2019 Anzac Day dawn service.

Children, parents and seniors from across the Dawesville area gathered as the sun rose over the water, behind the memorial, showcasing the silhouettes of Australian Defence Force cadets and the word ‘ANZAC’. 

Dawesville RSL vice president Bart Mavrick was the speaker for the event.

Poems were read and wreaths were laid as the community showed their respects, remembering those who served and had fallen.

After the service, a gunfire breakfast was provided at the Port Bouvard Recreation and Sporting Club
