THERE will be 13 Anzac Day marches and services on the Mornington Peninsula.

The mayor Cr Bev Colomb said the day is a time for “reflection, thankfulness and remembrance of the Anzac landings at Gallipoli”.

“While Anzac Day has always been a huge day of national pride, each year reignites the community’s dedication to remembering the sacrifice so many have made for our country.

“We will remember not only the original Anzacs who served at Gallipoli, but commemorate more than a century of service by Australian servicemen and women.”
