Call out to any interested members of the Shire of Victoria Plains.
Below is a template of a poppy, we are looking for people to make as many
poppies as you like ie: paper,
felt, plastic, card, fabric or anything
We would like to make a mass display on black netting to be hung outside the Hall on ANZAC Day
If you could make your POPPY (with your name attached) and place it in an envelope to Calingiri Progress
Association, Post Office, CALINGIRI 6569 that would be excellent.

ANZAC DAY 2016
The Shire of Victoria Plains and Calingiri Progress Association (Inc), invite residents to an Anzac Day
commemorative service at the Victoria Plains Shire War Memorial in Calingiri, at 11.00am on Monday 25
The 2015, 100
year anniversary commemoration service of the Gallipoli landings, was an exceptional event,
and it is proposed that the theme of continuing to commemorate the 100
anniversary of aspects of World War
One (WW1), be continued.
1916 marked the arrival of Anzac forces on the Western Front in France, and 2016 will be the 100
Residents who have had grandparents or great-grand parents directly serving in WW1, are particularly
welcomed to this year’s service.
