Hilltops Sergeant Parry Memorial Day

November 19 @ 4:00 pm - 10:30 pm EST

HISTORY2016
 The Community of Jugiong is commemorating Sergeant Edmund Parry who made the ultimate sacrifice for his Community at Jugiong. In order to Celebrate this milestone; the Village of Jugiong Community is holding a day to showcase the History, Food, Wine and Music of the Hilltops Region on the 19th of November 2016.
The Memorial Day first kicked off in 2012 when Jugiong helped Celebrate the 150 years of Policing in NSW. Community members felt it was appropriate to do this by celebrating a “local hero.” The theme of the day was then based around the courage shown by Sergeant Edmund PARRY of Gundagai Police who was shot dead by the Bushranger, John GILBERT on the 16th of November 1864 in a gun battle at Jugiong.
Planned activities on the day include a Memorial service honouring Sergeant Edmund Parry in the Jugiong Park. Three re-enactments including the gun battle between Police and Hall Gang at Jugiong. Between the re-enactments will be live music from local entertainers along with children shows by Pirate Pete and Gold Commissioners Tent. You will be able to see a Colonial Living History Camp along with a Chinese Miners Camp. You will feel we protected by the men of the 12th and 40th of Foot Regiments as they Patrol the area along with the Mounted Police. But be warned of the Bushrangers from Gold Trails Reenactments who may be lurking. You will also be able to sample the food and wine from the Hilltops Region whilst watching the Mechanical Bull Rides or taking a ride in the Cobb & Co Coach.
Any monies raised on the day will be used by the Jugiong Advancement Group for Community Facilities and Improvements along with the New South Wales Police Legacy to help support the families of Police who are killed in the line of duty.
