11th birthday Drew won't forget

BIRTHDAY celebrations for Bundaberg East State School student Drew Frahm have taken an interesting turn this year.

Young Drew celebrates his 11th birthday today on the 11/11/11.

Drew marked the day on a calendar as a memento to keep from the special occasion.

"It's pretty exciting," he said.

His mother Karen remembers going into labour 11 years ago as veterans and well-wishers marked Remembrance Day celebrations in the family's former home town near Warwick.

"We always knew he'd have a bit of a special day when he turned 11," she said.

"And now it's finally rolled around."
