Residents are invited to attend the Sunbury Anzac Day Dawn Service.

The Sunbury Sub-Branch National Servicemen’s Association of Australia (Nashos), together with the Sunbury RSL, will be hosting the town’s fifth annual dawn service on April 25.

Nashos president Ian Goss said the service will start at 5.30am at the Cenotaph, Stawell Street.

Mr Goss said he noticed a lack of Anzac Day commemorations in Sunbury in 2015 – so he decided to organise an event that remembered the lives lost during the wars.

“We should have a dawn service,” Mr Goss said.

“We never had one until 2015 and so I put my hand up to do it.

“I think it’s in everybody’s interest to go have a look … and come to the dawn service.”

The Sunbury RSL will be selling Anzac badges around town in the lead-up to April 25.
