There was a superb turnout from across Cubs, Scouts and Venturers earlier today to take part in the Brooklyn ANZAC Day Service and Parade. ANZAC Day is an excellent opportunity for youth and leaders to fulfill their duty to their country, and contribute to the community.
We were joined by RSA members, active service personnel, Pippins, Brownies, Guides and the St John’s youth – and loads of parents and residents. After packing out St Matthew’s Church (standing room only), the Salvation Army band led the parade down to the Community centre where hundreds enjoyed drinks and snacks.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
Brooklyn did itself proud this morning in its remembrance.
