Over 150 people attended our 2018 service on a beautiful sunny morning.  The convenor and MC was Adrian Probert who was supported by Padre Barry Fox from the Lobethal RSL.  This year the address was given by Wing Commander (retired) John Smee and .  This service always focuses on the stories of current and former residents and it was good to see local involvement, not the least of which was the singing of the New Zealand National Anthem by two young residents, Monique and Charlotte Teagle.
