ANZAC Day for Adelaide families at the Light Horse Memorial

One of our favourite options on ANZAC day for Adelaide families is the service at the Light Horse Memorial in the east parklands. This one is particularly great for families with young kids, those who just cannot make the 6am dawn service time or anyone else keen to get the family to a service with a little less stress and a little more of interest for the kids. Reasons we love the ANZAC Day Light Horse Memorial service in Adelaide: They have...

Lest We Forget – Kerry Brown

It’s about a little boy talking to his Grandpa about important days in his life, playing soccer with his team, new uniform on the first day at school…… and through the beautiful illustrations you see the parallel story of his Grandpas time at war, with his “team” in the trenches, wearing his soldiers uniform. We’ve had 7 billion questions this morning about...

What Does ANZAC Day Mean to ME

I’ve only been to a handful of ANZAC Day services. We usually go to the service at Brighton, but have also been to one at Victor Harbor.
