Around New Zealand today we are honouring the ANZAC’s virtually..  Here is some of the highlights from here in Hawke’s Bay.
I’d like to begin this blog, by heading out to Elsthorpe. The community of Elsthorpe led by my friend, George Williams of Black Dog Design.
Developed their ANZAC Day service over Facebook. The ANZAC posts for Elsthorpe are still being posted and of which, are posted backwards so people see them in order, when visiting the Facebook.

Some of my favourites 🖤
ANZAC Day at Elsthorpe began with a beautiful piano rendition.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.
