Anzac Dawn Service in Booralee Park
This Friday is Anzac Day, a national day of remembrance and reflection. It is an opportunity to celebrate the resilience and strength of the Australian character, to cherish our community and our way of life. Our City is honoured to support our two local RSL Sub Branches, Botany and Mascot, prepare and hold the Dawn Service to honour and remember all servicemen and women that have fought in wars, conflict and peacekeeping operations. The Dawn Service is at 6am at the Booralee Park Cenotaph. I look forward to joining our RSL Sub Branches, together with our community, for this solemn occasion.

Botany and the Bay Exhibition
‘Botany & the Bay’ explores the Botany district’s changing relationship with its famous namesake. It looks at the fond memories many locals have of swimming, fishing and sailing on the Bay. It also considers the negative impacts of this body of water. In the 1930s for example, the serious erosion of our coast left some residents in fear their homes would be washed away. The exhibition brings together a wide collection of photographs and objects sourced from Council’s archives and local residents. 'Botany & the Bay' runs from September 9th 2013 – May 16th 2014 at George Hanna Museum, located within the Mascot Library, 2 Hatfield Street, Mascot.

ANZAC Day 2014
Anzac Day is a day of national remembrance and reflection. It is an opportunity to celebrate the resilience and strength of the Australian character, to cherish our community and our way of life.
In the true Anzac spirit we unite to pay tribute to and remember all servicemen and women that have fought in wars, conflict and peacekeeping operations. Therefore I urge everyone, young and old, to stand with them on April 25 to commemorate their bravery and sacrifices.
We must never forget what they did and what it meant for our nation.
