RSL Seymour Branch president Tony Lee said he was rapt with how the day panned out.

‘‘There was a bigger crowd this year than last — it’s just getting bigger and bigger,’’ he said.

‘‘I was really happy with it all. Everything just went perfectly and it was a sunny day, thank God.

‘‘I don’t think well have enough room in Anzac Ave to put everyone next year!’’

Mr Lee said he wanted to give a special thank you to the Ladies’ Auxiliary, the army, the police, Max and Ashlee from Seymour College, Colonel Richard Parker, Ambulance Victoria’s Pipes and Drum band, and the two men who ran the two-up game at the RSL.
