Otautau's core civic groups -- Police, Fire, and Ambulance -- are already there dressed in uniform. RSA member, Allan Brown, calls them to attention. Bugler, Dave Clapp, sounds his mournful strains. Before long, in the distance, the pipe band begins its march toward the memorial bringing the St Andrew Scouts and Girl Guides with them. It's always a very poignant moment when the pipe band plays.

Once again, the Otautau RSA's Anzac Day Service brought the community together in remembrance to feel, share and strengthen its bond. Thank you, RSA, for this important public ceremony.
