IT wasn’t like any other ANZAC Day but it didn’t matter to Currajong residents who stood outside with poppies, wreaths and candles as one, as part of the Driveway Dawn Service initiative to commemorate ANZAC Day 2020.
“For residents at Russell Street like Bonnita Brady and staff, it was a chance to pay their respects to our fallen heroes and the sacrifice they made,” said Currajong’s Dane Millerd.
“While previously they’d have marched, this year many of our residents and participants have found other creative ways to engage in the ANZAC Day experience,” he said.
“From making wreaths and poppies through to flags – everyone has been active and love to be a part of the experience.”
At Westview, residents Shane Spicer and Timbo Wheeler (pictured) made ANZAC biscuits while Amanda Clifton designed ANZAC Day booklets.
“I know everyone has had a great time finding expressive ways to acknowledge this special day,” said Dane.
“It’s been fantastic to see and I want to say a big thanks to our staff for their efforts too,” he said.
“And to all our servicemen and women – thank you and lest we forget.”
