For the second straight year, the Merriwa community will have an Anzac Day Dawn service, march and main service in the town centre.
In the lead up, Merriwa became a Rosemary town again.
For over 25 years, those at Legacy have supplied Rosemary to be used in sprigs worn by people marching in Anzac day marches around Sydney, which raises money for the Legacy charity.
After a two-year break, Merriwa Legacy invited locals to fill the collection boxes at the RSL from Sunday to Tuesday this week.
