Cootamundra residents are being encouraged to mark Anzac Day this year with their own personal tributes.
In some centres residents will be standing in their driveways at 6am on Anzac Day to mark the occasion.
In others members of the town band will be playing The Last Post from their front yards.
The father of retired Royal Australian Navy member Karen Horsburgh has made a tribute for a driveway dawn service.
"He made everything you see and the medals belong to my grandfather, sister, brother, my dad and myself," Karen said.
Karen served in the Navy for 19 years.
"My sister is still in the RAAF after 26 years and my father and brother were in the NSW Police Force," Karen said.
"We took it all down after the photos were taken and will put up again just before dawn on Anzac Day.
"A spotlight will shine up onto the soldier and flag at half mast, and I have introduced my dad to a battle breakfast which I was given every Anzac Day...of a tot of rum and Anzac biscuits.
"We have proudly served and to continue to serve this great country of ours. I just wanted to share my father's efforts," Karen said.
ALSO MAKING NEWS:
In other centres members of town bands are taking part in a grassroots campaign for Australians to commemorate Anzac Day at dawn in their driveways.
With traditional services and marches cancelled because of the COVID-19 pandemic, RSL branches in every state have unanimously endorsed the gesture, with families across the nation expected to stand at their gates, on balconies or verandahs at 6am on Saturday April 25.
Please join us and the rest of Australia in this special moment to remember all those who have served and sacrificed for this nation.
We may not be able to stand together as we usually would, but we can still stand united in spirit.
Anyone interested should download the sheet music, start practising and notify their neighbourhood via a letterbox drop. http://musicformateship.org/
