Residents invited to pay their respects on Anzac Day 2017
Golden Plains residents are invited to pay their respects to those who served in our armed forces as well as to current service personnel, this Anzac Day on 25 April.
The Centenary of World War I (1914-1918) continues in 2017. Australia's contribution to the First World War was significant - with over 400,000 enlisted from a population of less than five million.
