Anzac Day Service

I would like to thank all who contributed to and attended the Greenethorpe ANZAC Day ceremony. A large crowd was present and we were pleased to have the P&C offer a lovely breakfast which contributed to their own fundraising and Legacy.
There were plenty of yummy, traditional ANZAC biscuits so thanks to all that helped with that as well.
Our ceremony is always special with the local servicemen being honoured and inducted into our Wall of Honour.
This year we had Warwick Hodges telling the story of his father, Les Hodges, and Christine Doonan came all the way from Tasmania to tell the story of her father Robert Black.
We have a few more people booked in for the next years but if anyone has a family member they would like to honour or if you would like to research one of the people on the honour roll who no longer have family in the district please contact me and we can book you in/get you started.
Thanks

Greenethorpe

is a small village in the Central West of NSW, between Cowra, Young and Grenfell. We have a population of about 120 in the village, with another 100 people on nearby farming properties. Within the village are the Circa 1935 Cafe and Post Office, the Shamrock Hotel (closed at present), Greenethorpe Public School, the Blue Sky art gallery and a Police Station. Art of Espresso Coffee is produced nearby.

 

The village celebrated its centenary in September 2008. It was purpose-built in 1908 to house the share-farmers who worked at Iandra Station, the property of George Henry Greene about 11km away on the road to Young. This property (with its "castle") is open for inspection several times a year, usually on long weekends.
