Anzac Day is one of the major commemorative events for the Tin Can Bay RSL. The Anzac Day programme will commence on 25 April with the Dawn Service in the area behind the RSL Hall at 5.30am, followed by a Gunfire Breakfast at 6.30am. The Anzac Day Parade and Wreath Laying Ceremony will commence at 8:30am at Anzac Memorial Park.

Following the services, all are welcome to return to the Tin Can Bay RSL for refreshments. The whole community is invited to attend our commemorative services so please come along and make Anzac Day 2023 a day to remember.

As I pen this article my thoughts shift to our current service men and women who have committed to Australia’s Armed Forces. Our own son, Ben, is currently a Captain in the Australian Army serving in Fiji.

The global agenda is becoming more complex with the war in Ukraine, diplomatic pressures between some of the most powerful nations in the world, and the future construction of nuclear submarines.

When you attend Anzac Day this year, please give a thought to our Armed Forces who may be required to serve our nation in warfare as others did who have served before them.

They do a tremendous job, home and abroad, and deserve our continued support. And so we repeat the mantra ‘Thank you for your Service’.
