The Hervey Bay RSL Sub-Branch will hold COVID safe Commemoration Services at the Light Horse War Memorial in Freedom Park, Pialba. Due to ongoing restrictions, only ex-service personnel will take part in both marches this year.
The Dawn Service march will leave the RSL Club at about 0515 hours and the service will start when the march has entered Freedom Park at about 0530 hours. Please Note: only ex-service personnel will march on the day.
Sub-Branch members who would like to attend the Gunfire Breakfast from 6am at the RSL, MUST BOOK their ticket at the Sub-Branch or RSL Administration (Level 2) between 9.30am and 4pm, Monday to Friday,
between March 21 and April 21, 2021.
Due to ongoing restrictions, wristbands will NOT be issued on the day. BOOKINGS ARE ESSENTIAL
The Main March will step-off from the RSL carpark at about 1000 (10am) hours and move to Freedom Park. The service will commence at 1030 hours.
The main service will have a special focus on Air Force 100 - Centenary of Air Force, including an address form ex-RAAF personnel.
If you are feeling unwell, please stay at home.
Residents are still welcome to pay their respects in their driveway should they choose to.
Veterans will then return to the Hervey Bay RSL for a closed function, where they will be sure to raise a glass or two to their fallen mates, tell tales and exchange yarns – something that was sorely missed last year.
The RSL will then open to the public at 1.00pm, with the café also open at this time.
The gaming room will open at 1pm.
Two-up will also be held in Hervey House from 1pm.
