Rotary and college represented at Ettalong service

Representatives of Rotary clubs and of Brisbane Water Secondary College were among those who attended the Anzac Day morning service at Ettalong.

President of the Rotary Club of Brisbane Water, Ms Cherie Simpson, laid a wreath at Ettalong Beach Vietnam Veterans' memorial.

"It was a moving service on the foreshore as usual," she said.

President of the Rotary Club of Woy Woy, Ms Julie Jones, said: "I was fortunate enough to be able to place a beautiful wreath at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial at Ettalong at 8am.

"As with the Woy Woy service, attendance numbers certainly increased from years gone by.

"It was a lovely service with the re-enactment brigade lending a historical element to the day.

"The Rev Arthur Pearce, as always, spoke with compassion and connected to the crowd.

"His selection of verses and quotes from the bible were so appropriate to the service

"The two school captains from Brisbane Water Secondary College spoke beautifully and left all present with that lovely feeling that our future is indeed in capable hands."

Woy Woy campus principal Ms Rebecca Cooper and Umina campus principal Ms Kerrie O'Heir also attended.

"Our Umina student leaders Gemma Fabbiani, Milena Alex and Ebony Falconer joined with John Lennard and Charli Grant from BWSC Woy Woy to remember our service men and women at the Ettalong Anzac service," said Ms O'Heir.

Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch said: "It was wonderful to see captains from BWSC Woy Woy and BWSC Umina representing our community.

"Charli Grant and John Lennard from the senior campus gave outstanding addresses at the Ettalong Memorial Service hosted by the Vietnam Veterans Peacemakers and Peacekeepers Association.

"It was a beautiful day, and all services in the Gosford electorate were very well attended.

"Thank you to everyone who took the time to honour and respect all those who have served our great nation."
