The sun came out for the crowd as our community gathered at Picken Oval for the Anzac Day AFL Matches and the commemoration service by Magpie Sports & the CHP RSL Sub-Branch.

Sportsmen and women, AFL fans, speakers and performers of all ages joined us to contribute their talent, stories, insights, and words of remembrance. We are thankful for our younger generations for their respect, and for playing their part in continuing the legacy of our heroes past and present.

Magpie Sports was buzzing afterward with Members and guests enjoying an afternoon of great food, 2UP and BIG screen footy. With funds being raised in our community raffles.
