  • Attended the Anzac Service in Jimboomba where there was an outstanding attendance this morning, 25th April 2024. I thought of you and the service you gave to your country. I remembered the many Anzac day services we attended as children with you in Te Aroha and how proud we were to see you marching in the parade.
