Members of the Rotary Club of Botany Randwick were proud to participate in two very moving ANZAC Day Dawn Services at Bondi and Coogee beaches, to commemorate the 107th Anniversary of the landing at Gallipoli by the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, and to remember the sacrifice of members of our armed forces in subsequent conflicts.
In a very moving service at Coogee Beach, attended by a capacity crowd of over 6000, members Richard Woodburn and Alan Segal, with Rotary Foundation Global Scholar Aya Murakami, laid the wreath on behalf of the Club.  Alan was wearing the WW1 medals of his grandfather, who was decorated for bravery in the field, with the award of the Military Medal, presented by General Sir John Monash.  Richard is a retired Lieutenant Colonel and a former Commanding Officer of the 21st Construction Regiment, Royal Australian Engineers.
Our Honorary Member Aunty Barb also gave a very moving Welcome to Country at the very well attended commemoration at Bondi Beach.
