Another quiet week in Lane Cove (you know it’s quiet when you see empty car parking spaces in the Rosenthal Avenue Car Park). Expect next week to be busy with kids heading back to school and parents stocking up after school holidays.
Lane Cove came out in force today to watch the Lane Cove ANZAC Day service. It was another beautiful service presented by the Lane Cove RSL Sub-Branch and the Lane Cove Council. Descendants of the Dettmann family were in attendance and gave an account of WW1 Veterans G.R. (Paddy) Dettmann’s life in Lane Cove. There is a street named after the family in Longueville. If you would like to know more about the planning of the service and the man behind it read our blog here.
This week we also published a blog on the remarkable Margaret Tanner who is Vice President of the War Widows Association and a keen golfer – you can read her story here.
Thank you to everyone who sent us in pictures of their ANZAC Day. There were some beautiful shots. Here is a sample.
The winner of our ANZAC Day photography competition is Mandy Ambler for her beautiful photo below and the story that accompanied the picture.
These wonderful youngsters met up at last year’s Anzac Day on this exact spot. Does anyone know their story? I think they may have grown up knowing each other in Lane Cove. I missed this photo last year but was determined not to miss it this year! Love how proudly they are wearing their medals. Lest we forget.
A runner-up prize goes to Alison Guthrie who caught this lovely moment of reflection (and a few of the shots up above)
