North Beach RSL Sub-Branch Member, Fritz Gfeller (Fred) dedicated the Spirit of the ANZACs Memorial Garden at the Lady McCusker Village in Duncraig on Remembrance Day.
Fred hopes that other Retirement Villages will take up the challenge and incorporate a Memorial Garden within their grounds. The Memorial Garden is made up of the “Spirit of the ANZACs” Grevillea and includes a plaque donated by Fred.
Residents of Lady McCusker Village (including the village cat) came together at a short ceremony followed by afternoon tea.
Mr Gfeller explained that he came to Australia as an immigrant in 1948, obtained Australian Citizenship in 1954 and served in the Australian Army for 22 years.
Fred is truly thankful to Australia and wishes to honour the Spirit of the ANZACs.
