On Anzac Day morning, the Woorim community gathered to continue their traditional Anzac Dawn Service at the cenotaph adjacent to Woorim Beach.
Under clearing skies before dawn at Bluey Piva Park, about 400 local residents gathered to remember the sacrifice of our serviceman before moving to watch the dawn from Woorim Beach. Woorim residents, Ian & Heather Clout decided to organise the service on hearing of the Bribie Island RSL Sub Branch’s decision to move their traditional 2018 Anzac Dawn service to Bongaree. “We are so pleased to play a part in continuing our tradition” Ian commented.

“The attendance was excellent with none of the access issues claimed by the RSL. It was also so good to have a fine bugler support our service at short notice”. Sunshine Avenue resident, Dianne Weh, was also pleased to attend the service.
“I first came to this dawn service at Woorim at least 56 years years ago” Dianne recalled. “It’s wonderful to see this tradition continue”. Plans are underway for the community to continue the Woorim Dawn Service in 2019 and into the future.
