Canton Mixed Bowlers on Anzac Day

Twenty two members of the Canton Mixed Bowlers paid their respects to our fallen servicemen and women by participating in this year's Anzac Day March that started from The Village Green, Toukley at 9am on Anzac Day 25th April and marched to the Toukley RSL Cenotaph for the service and wreath laying ceremony. An added treat was a low level fly-past performed by an R.A.A.F fighter jet.
Marching as a group for the first time, their colourful lawn bowls uniforms  made them easily recognisable among the marchers.
It was pleasing to see so many young people from local schools and scout groups in uniform joining the march to help pay tribute to their forefathers and mothers who fought for the freedoms that we all enjoy today.  
After the march the bowlers met at their home club, Canton Beach Sports Club, for an “Aussie-style” lunch of pies and sausage rolls washed down with a beverage, followed by a game of mixed bowls.  The bowlers voted the march a success and hope to do it again next Anzac Day.
