ANZAC Brought to Life
Ahead of ANZAC Day 2017, Cessnock City Mayor, Councillor Bob Pynsent encouraged families to reflect on war time life at a unique and free interactive display at Kurri Kurri and Cessnock libraries.
“The fascinating history talk and hands on display will give those who attend the opportunity to hold authentic soldiers’ equipment and to try on replica uniforms”.
“We are privileged to have Shane Blackman from World War Living History sharing stories of such a pivotal point in history with our community”.
“The exhibition is designed to appeal to a multi-generational audience and is a brilliant opportunity for grandparents, parents and young people to come together to share the hardship, courage and sacrifice of our service men and women,” Cr Pynsent said.
