Pay your respects at local Anzac Day services

Published Thursday, 11th April 2024

The City’s Flagship Funding will support three local dawn services this Anzac Day.

The ceremonies, hosted by RSL Sub-Branches in Wanneroo, Quinns Rocks and Yanchep, aim to honour Australian and New Zealand service men and women who served in World War I and the conflicts that followed.

Mayor Linda Aitken said she was proud the City could support these important services and encouraged the community to attend to pay their respects.

“Anzac Day plays a significant role in Wanneroo’s history and I thank our wonderful RSL Sub-Branches for honouring service men and women," she said. 

“The Wanneroo district was far from Europe, but this did not shield our tiny community of 300 people from the horrors of World War I.

"It’s important we reflect on the sacrifices defence personnel have made and continue to make for our community.”

The City’s Flagship Funding supports not-for-profit community groups and organisations delivering community initiatives that recognise, celebrate and commemorate the City’s rich history and diverse culture.
