Newsletter No. 67 Farina Restoration Group. 17 January 2018

Hello Farina Supporters,

Registrations have continued to come in at an exceptional rate. We are at the stage where, while we welcome your registrations, all dates may no longer be available. Tom will contact all who register to discuss this.

Our head baker is still looking for bakers, mainly for weeks 7 (July 7th- 14th) and 8 (July 14th – 21st) though there are other weeks which would benefit with extra help from a baker. Please contact me if you can help. Thank you.

ANZAC DAY

Farina commemorates ANZAC day with a special dawn service triennially – 2018 will be the next occasion.

Our War Memorial site is unique for this special event. Its situation on an elevated rocky outcrop looking towards the sun rising behind the Flinders Ranges in the far south east and its natural isolation above a river redgum creek line all contribute to this very special place.

We are honored to have Robert Manton, Director of Veterans, South Australia, present with us and participating in formalities.

The Dawn Service will commence at 6 15am on Wednesday 25th April to be followed by a ”gunfire“ breakfast and address from 7.30 am.

A special dedication ceremony (not ANZAC related) will be conducted at the Farina Cemetery at 10.30 am.

Site Tours for visitors will be available after lunchtime.

Further detail of campground access and parking will be circulated about 21 days prior.

Disabled access will be available by arrangement.

Please advise our ANZAC Day organiser: Lindsay Gould lgou8208@bigpond.net.au if you need this assistance.
