Again this year, Lilydale’s Rotary Club was on hand to supply breakfast to the Dawn Service attendees and RSL members as they looked to warm up back at the Anderson Street clubrooms.
It followed yet another beautiful dawn service at the Lilydale cenotaph, seeing thousands choosing to commemorate the day on Main Street, with emergency services, school students and community members laying wreaths in tribute.
Project Lead Barb Lawrence said it was a honour for the Club members to volunteer their time to help raise money for returned servicemen and women.
“Whilst the sausages are ‘gold coin donation’ it was really heart-warming to receive generous donations in memory of loved ones from local community members,” Barb said.
The Rotary Club of Lilydale will continue its partnership with Lilydale RSL in 2025 which will be the 110 years anniversary of the landings at Gallipoli.
