ANZAC Day 2016 has a very special place in Australia’s history, as it is the 101st anniversary of landing at Gallipoli by members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.

ANZAC Day, held on 25 April, will forever be a very important part of Australian history.
This year the Peace and Loyalty Masonic Lodge in conjunction with the Boronia RSL will conduct a ceremony at the Knox War Memorial located at the Tim Neville Arboretum, Dorset Road, Ferntree Gully.
Hurtle Lupton, OAM, JP, a well know member of the community, will be the guest speaker at this event.

The Knox War memorial recorded the names of all service men and women from the Knox area who lost their lives in any conflict in which Australia has been involved.

The ceremony will commence at 10 am on ANZAC Day.

This will be the first time a service will be held at the Knox War Memorial on ANZAC Day. All members of the public are invited to attend.

You can also attend the Anzac Day Dawn Service at the Old Quarry. Details here.
