Fallen servicemen and women will be remembered in dawn and civic services around the Taupo District on ANZAC Day. The main ceremony will be held at the cenotaph on Tongariro Domain in Taupo at dawn this Tuesday.
Those involved in the dawn parade will depart from the Taupo RSA on Horomatangi Street at 5.50am and will travel along Horomatangi, Ruapehu, Tamamutu and Tongariro streets before arriving at the cenotaph for the 6.15am service.
This route accommodates those with mobility issues as it avoids speed bumps.
Later in the morning, at 10.30am, a civic service and parade will be held. Mayor David Trewavas is scheduled to take part in the service and to make a short speech.
All ex-servicemen and women as well as other interested parties can take part in the parade. Those who want to join in can assemble outside the Taupo Bowling Club on Ferry Road at 10.15am, ready to march to the cenotaph outside the Great Lake Centre.
