CELEBRATING the connections many Riverland families have built with the Australian military remains a key aspect of Anzac Day in the region.
BERRI Barmera Council has stepped in to ensure Barmera will stage an official Anzac Day event this year.
BARMERA’S bumper Anzac Day dawn service has been cancelled for the second year in a row – but three other Riverland towns will hold their regular commemorations, under COVID-19 conditions.
STORM systems which saw more than 18mm of rain fall in parts of the Riverland on Anzac Day are expected to bring cold temperatures and windy conditions in the coming days.
PARTICIPATING in Anzac Day tributes at home last weekend gave a group of locals the chance to bond over Australian history.
HONOURING Renmark veterans in a manner that included the “whole community” has inspired the new name of a local war memorial.
RENMARK Girl Guides have continued a long-standing Anzac Day tradition marking the graves of local war veterans with Australian flags while adhering to social distancing restrictions.
WAIKERIE’S RSL members are asking the community “not to forget” to observe the upcoming Anzac Day, with people encouraged to lay wreaths prior to the day or stand at the end of their driveways to “light up the dawn” this Saturday.
