(Community Recognition Statement, 8 May 2014, Legislative Assembly, NSW Parliament)
This year I attended the Mustard Seed Uniting Church Anzac memorial service in Ultimo with Lord Mayor Clover Moore. The service led by Reverend Robin Davis was well supported by the local Ultimo and Pyrmont community. I then joined Governor Marie Bashir at Town Hall to watch Sydney's Anzac Day parade. Anzac Day is also an important opportunity to remember our young and Indigenous soldiers who have served. This year's dawn service in Sydney attracted the largest crowd in years. I commend all those who attended.
