Rob Patterson, "Honour Our Fallen" local co-ordinator, told the Beagle "I would like to extend my thanks to all of the students who gave up their time and help the community to pay our respects to our ex servicemen. Likewise my thanks are extended to Moruya High School Principal Richard Schell, Carroll College's Nathan Mansfield and to all the staff who organised it. Especially so, when you consider that its right in the middle of School Holidays. WELL DONE Everyone involved."
