The LiveBetter Disability Service hosted their first ANZAC Day memorial service at the Railway Town WWI monument outside of the West Football Club.

Every year on the Thursday prior to Anzac Day, LiveBetter customers and staff have held an activity at their Centre to acknowledge and show respect for our fallen troops.

“Because the memorial was there, we went across the road so we could lay wreaths,” said LiveBetter’s Tanya Bacich.

Local Brendon Williams was the MC for the ceremony where he recited a prayer and poem of his choosing, following with a reciting of the ode, a playing of the Last Post and finishing with a minute’s silence.

Mr Williams did an excellent job as the official MC and with placing a wreath on behalf of LiveBetter.

Fellow LiveBetter customer and long-term West Football Club fan, Mr William Gauci, also laid a wreath at the memorial on behalf of the West Football Club.
