Once again our people will gather on ANZAC Day to pay their respects to our service people who have partaken in wars across the world.
The commemorations will take place at points across the district, organised by our Returned Services Associations.
The Dawn Service will start at 5.15am with a march from Karamu Rd to the cenotaph in Civic Square. After hymns, wreath-laying, firing volley and reveille, a fly past by the Hawke’s Bay Aero Club will soar overhead at 6am. Breakfast is being offered at Clubs Hastings, at $2 a head.
A service for ex-service people and the community will be held at the Hawke’s Bay Fallen Soldiers’ memorial Hospital, after which community services will be held across the district over the morning in Maraekakaho, Clive, Havelock North and Te Hauke. Mayor Lawrence Yule and councillors will attend services across the rohe.
