At the going down of the sun…
I was your mate… the kid across the street… the med. student at graduation… the mechanic in the corner garage… the baker who brought you bread… the gardener who cut your lawn… the clerk who sent your phone bill.
I was an Army private… a Naval commander… an Air Force bombardier. no man knows me… no name marks my tomb, for I am every Australian serviceman… I am the Unknown Soldier.
I died for a cause I held just in the service of my land… that you and yours may say in freedom… I am proud to be an Australian.
Lest We Forget
Over the next couple of weeks Knox LAC will be raising money for the Breast Cancer Network Australia culminating in a Pink Sports Day at our Cross Country Meet at Jells Park on the 8th of May 2021.
In 2021, it is predicted that 20,525 Australians will be diagnosed with breast cancer – an average of 57 people per day.
To help raise money for BCNA on the 8th of May, we will be asking for a Gold Coin donation per athlete and will be running a raffle with the prize of a Darryl Lea chocolate box donated by Nick Wakeling MP – member for Ferntree Gully.
Tickets are $2 each or 3 for $5. Tickets will be on sale from our canteen this weekend and drawn on the 8th of May during the Under 6 race.
We will also have a collection tin for anyone wishing to donate more or you can donate now online via the following link
Our goal is to raise $500, so please donate now as this cause is one that is very close to home for some of our Knox Families.
