In 2021 we belatedly commemorate 100 years since the unveiling of the Mologa War Memorial. Our 2020 ANZAC service was going to be an extra special event to commemorate this occasion. Sadly due to the Coronavirus we were unable to hold the service then, however we commemorated this occasion at the 2021 ANZAC service which was attended by over 100 people.
A spectacular tribute to the Mologa soldiers was produced by Denise Leed, who, with the help of several locals, created 10 “Hay Bale Soldiers” at the corner of the Mologa-Durham Ox Rd and the Bendigo-Pyramid Rd.
This memorial honours the Mologa Soldiers who fought in the war, and honours the memory of local farmer Allan Leed who tragically lost his life last year in a farm accident. Below is some photos.
