Pure people power to honour Anzac's spirit in Isaac

Standing shoulder-to-shoulder from the coast to the outback, Isaac residents will honour the nation’s most revered commemorative services this month.

Residents are encouraged to attend dawn and morning services across nine towns in Isaac for Anzac Day services on Thursday, April 25.

Isaac Regional Council Mayor Anne Baker said the Isaac region will pay tribute to the sacrifices of diggers past and present.

“We will remember the tenacity, resilience and heroism our soldiers have shown us,” Mayor Baker said.

“We will honour the strong sense of solidarity, sentiment and pride as we come together to remember the Anzacs and all those who fought for our country.

“I encourage residents in the Isaac region to come together, not to glorify war, but to acknowledge the courage and sacrifice of those who contributed so much in shaping the identity of this proud nation, and those who continue to serve.”

This year marks the 104th anniversary of the Anzac landings at Gallipoli.

Council will host Anzac Day events across Isaac in partnership with local RSL groups and community organisations.
