President Update – 14 April 2020

Dear Members,

As ANZAC Day draws closer, I ask each and every one of you to watch and share my video message calling on Australians to ensure that even during these difficult times, they remember our service personnel past and present.

I’d also like to say thank you for your patience during the challenges and uncertainty we are facing. Like you, everyone from ANZAC House is determined to ensure that ANZAC Day is commemorated appropriately.

We have developed a resource that outlines ways in which members and the general public can acknowledge ANZAC Day in a respectful and appropriate way. There is no doubt that these are new and alternative methods of commemorating. Importantly however, they all do one thing; they provide an opportunity to pause and remember.

This act of remembering and paying respects to those that have sacrificed is what keeps the ANZAC tradition alive.

Please share this resource with other members of the RSL, as well as people in your communities, to ensure that ANZAC Day is appropriately observed and that the tradition of pausing and remembering those who have served and sacrificed is not forgotten.

You can find out more and also download resources including a poster here: https://www.rslnsw.org.au/anzac-spirit

Lest We Forget.

 

Ray James

Acting State President
