Federal Member for Wright Scott Buchholz MP is encouraging all local residents to join in commemorating Anzac Day 2024.

Federal Member for Wright Scott Buchholz MP is encouraging all local residents to join in commemorating Anzac Day 2024 by attending their local ceremonies and paying tribute to the brave men and women who served our nation in the Australian Defence Force.

Mr Buchholz said Anzac Day held profound significance for Australians, serving as a solemn reminder of the sacrifices made by those who have served and continue to serve in times of conflict and peacekeeping missions.

“Anzac Day traces its origins back to 25 April, 1915, when Australian and New Zealand troops landed on the shores of Gallipoli during World War I,” Mr Buchholz said.

“The bravery and resilience displayed by the Anzacs in the face of adversity left an indelible mark on the collective consciousness of both nations.

“Since then, Anzac Day has evolved into a day of remembrance not only for the Gallipoli campaign but also for all Australians who have served and died in wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations.

“It is a day to honour the courage, sacrifice, and mateship of our servicemen and women, past and present.”

Mr Buchholz emphasised the importance of attending local Anzac Day ceremonies, where communities come together to pay their respects, reflect on the significance of the day, and express gratitude to those who served.

“Anzac Day provides us with an opportunity to pause and reflect on the sacrifices made by our servicemen and women, as well as their families, in defence of our nation,” Mr Buchholz said.

“It is a day to honour their bravery, commemorate their service, and ensure that their legacy lives on in our hearts and minds.”

Mr Buchholz encouraged all residents in Wright to attend their local Anzac Day ceremonies and participate in honouring the Anzac spirit.

“Let us come together as a community to pay our respects and express our gratitude to those who have served and continue to serve our country,” he said.
