On Anzac Day, Challenge 2000 Hawkes Bay and 12 local young people put on a drama in both Havelock North and Napier with the theme of “remembering our ancestors who served our country by doing the same in this millennium”. Both plays were received well by those who attended and many older and younger people were moved to tears.
A different team acted in a similar drama at Eastbourne and Johnsonville on Saturday and Sunday 27/28 April. Once again it was well received by everyone present. Many people remarked on the connection between the service and sacrifice of our Anzac ancestors who died overseas or came home to build a better nation and the young people’s challenge today to be people who serve and bring about justice and peace.
