GALLERY// Yuleba commemorates ANZAC Day 2016

It was an extra special ANZAC day in Yuleba as the community unveiled their new memorial cenotaph at the Garth Cox Park.

Mounted soldiers led the parade down Stephenson St followed by veterans, a marching band and kids from the local schools.

The service was a fitting tribute to our service men and women both past and present and was well attended by all in the community.

It was the first official unveiling of the new monument recognising the service of those from the region.

The project was dubbed  ‘Through the Cracks: Remembering Yuleba’s Lost WWI Soldiers’, and reflects the names of local service men and women who served in conflicts from World War I up to the present day.

Four plinths make up the cenotaph, and frame the Memorial Hall looking through to the North and will surely be a focal point in town for many years to come.

We’ll have all the details from the parade and the service in our Maranoa Regional Report out later this week.
