- Join in ANZAC Day commemorations -
The Redlands RSL Sub Branch has invited the entire community to take
part in this year`s ANZAC Day commemorations this Friday.
Special morning services will be held at the Cleveland, Redland Bay, Russell Island and Macleay Island cenotaphs (times listed below).
The annual ANZAC Day march will follow the dawn services at Cleveland at 10.30am.
Local RSL Sub-Branch president Ron Poole encouraged all veterans of the allied forces to take part in the special day of remembrance.
He also urged parents and grandparents to bring along their children to ensure that the spirit of the ANZAC legend lives on forever.
"It was just wonderful to see so many children taking part in the march last year and it would be really great to see them all again - hopefully the school holidays won`t keep people away," he said.
The official Cleveland ANZAC Day March at 10.30am will wind its way along Middle Street (heading east) from the Cleveland Bowls Club to the Cleveland Cenotaph, opposite the Redlands RSL Services Club.
