Digger Day

On the weekend I had the pleasure of attending the Digger Day celebrations which is a fundraiser supporting the veterans in our local community who have sustained a physical or psychological disability from their military service.  Digger Day is a day of celebration rather than commemoration showcasing our current serving men & women as well as our Nations and Commonwealths highest award for Valour, the Victoria Cross.

My congratulations go to the organisers of this fantastic event, especially Rick Meehan OAM, Founder and Chairman of Digger Day.  The event at the rugby field is always a show stopper, with the helicopter entrance of the diggers, parade of the rugby players and game.  The day is topped off with the Digger Day Gala Ball, an evening of stories filled with bravery, comradeship and the occasional laugh.
