ANZAC Day Ceremonies 2018

ANZAC DAY COMMUNITY EVENTS Wednesday 25th April 2018

The Shire of Donnybrook-Balingup community came together to commemorate ANZAC Day. 

‘The Ode’ – as it is commonly known – is taken from a poem written by the English poet Laurence Binyon. It was first published in The Times (London) on 21 September 1914 and has been recited at commemorative services (not necessarily related to Anzac Day) since 1919.

“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them.”

The audience then responds: “We will remember them.”
