Editorial April 22th, 2017

Welcome to this week's Editors Choice ANZAC Day 2017 marks a centenary point in Australian history. Around the Shire thre will be services held to commemorate the fallen from all war campaigns and to reflect on the nation we are and the role we have played and continue to play on the world stage as we also commemorate 75 years since the end of the second world war and 70 years of peace keeping duties in international conflicts. These wars, these battles, have always been of someone else's doing however Australians, through allegiances, have stood up for their "mates" and gone to battle. And those who tens of thousands who stood up were all from our Australian community. When you read the names on the cenotaphs on Tuesday and you them as they are all local family names. Families who, for generations have contributed to where we live now; the facilities, the groups, and the social fabric we enjoy. April 21st, 2020 will mark the 250th anniversary of Lieutenant James Cook’s naming of Batemans Bay. Another opportunity for celebration and reflection. There has been a recent groundswell of interest being shown in the history of the Eurobodalla with Narooma, Moruya and Batemans Bay historical groups now able to source, digitise, archive and distribute photos, film and anecdotes as never before. This week we look at examples of the growing sense of pride that is building of where we live and of how our communities grew and prospered. Until next week Lei
