Hampton Park Progress Association has run a service at 11pm Saturday 11 November to honour Australians fallen in the First World War.

Over 50 people attended the service, including Hampton Park Fire Brigade, Hampton Park Men’s Shed, the principal and students from Hampton Park Secondary College, Neighbourhood Watch Casey, 2023 Casey Citizen of the Year Jo-Ann Fitzgerald, Australian Air League-Berwick Squadron, former Casey councillor Wayne Smith, and MP Gary Maas.

Chair of Neighbourhood Watch Casey Damien Rosario hosted the ceremony and read the commemorative address.

Hampton Park Progress Association Luke DeLutis said it was important that we learned from the past and never took for granted what we had today because of their ultimate sacrifice.

“Every year, we honour the sacrifice of those who have fallen to protect our freedoms,” he said.

“We thank our community partners for their unwavering support of our event as we unite to commemorate this solemn occasion.”
