Federal Member for Wright, Scott Buchholz MP is encouraging all local residents to join in commemorating ANZAC Day 2024 by attending their local ceremonies and paying tribute to the brave men and women who have served our nation in Australia’s Defence Forces.

Mr Buchholz said that ANZAC Day holds profound significance for Australians, serving as a solemn reminder of the sacrifices made by those who have served and continue to serve in times of conflict and peacekeeping missions.

“ANZAC Day traces its origins back to April 25, 1915, when Australian and New Zealand troops landed on the shores of Gallipoli during World War I,” Mr Buchholz said.

“The bravery and resilience displayed by the ANZACs (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) in the face of adversity left an indelible mark on the collective consciousness of both nations.”

“Since then, ANZAC Day has evolved into a day of remembrance not only for the Gallipoli campaign but also for all Australians who have served and died in wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations” Mr Buchholz said.

“It is a day to honour the courage, sacrifice, and mateship of our servicemen and women, past and present.”

Mr Buchholz emphasises the importance of attending local ANZAC Day ceremonies, where communities come together to pay their respects, reflect on the significance of the day, and express gratitude to those who have served.

“ANZAC Day provides us with an opportunity to pause and reflect on the sacrifices made by our servicemen and women, as well as their families, in defence of our nation,” said Mr. Buchholz.

“It is a day to honour their bravery, commemorate their service, and ensure that their legacy lives on in our hearts and minds.”

Mr Buchholz further added, “I encourage all residents of Wright to attend their local ANZAC Day ceremonies and participate in honouring the ANZAC spirit. Let us come together as a community to pay our respects and express our gratitude to those who have served and continue to serve our country.”

“Next week, I will be sending out a special commemorative ANZAC Newsletter which will include service times across the region, and I look forward to seeing as many locals as possible at services.”
