ANZAC Day services and marches will be held at 12 Mornington Peninsula towns on Anzac Day, Thursday 25 April.
Services will be held at different times and locations throughout the day to ensure everyone has an opportunity to attend and pay tribute to those who served and died in war.
Traditional dawn services are planned, as well as marches and additional remembrance services later in the day.
This year’s Anzac Day marks the 104th anniversary of the Gallipoli landing in 1915. The spirit of Anzac continues to play a role in the community through the qualities of courage, mateship and sacrifice.
The mayor Cr David Gill said the shire was “looking forward to supporting community events around the peninsula that will give everyone an opportunity to reflect on the meaning of Anzac Day”.
Cr Gill said Anzac Day was a time for reflection, gratitude and remembrance of the Anzac landings at Gallipoli.
“Every year around Australia thousands pay tribute to, and remember, those who served. Anzac Day is a time for our community to remember the sacrifices made by service men and women for our country.”
“This Anzac Day we will commemorate the 104th anniversary of the Gallipoli landing, and we will remember those who were there and those who have served in the years since.
“This year services and marches are spread across the peninsula at varying times providing an opportunity for all to attend and pay their respects.”
