The local RSL Sub group always fire up the BBQ, helping SLSC volunteers feed the thousands of people hundreds of burgers and snags for the Rainbow Beach Nipper Carnival – this month you will find John Molkentien, Trevor Ansell, Pat Nayler, Dave Tardrew and Joe Casey commemorating Remembrance Day on the 11th
Our RSL group is very active in the community – supporting Surf Lifesaving, the school and many other organisations. Keep a look out for them as they sell poppies in the main street, in the lead up to November 11.
President, Joe Casey says, “Remembrance Day is when Australians stop to reflect on the deeds performed and the sacrifices made by those who served their country in the military and such, in time of war and conflict.
“It’s also a time where we acknowledge and pray for the safety of those currently serving, particularly in conflict areas overseas and continuing the tradition that went before them.”
At 10.50am on Wednesday, November 11, the Sub Branch will conduct a ceremony to mark the occasion when, at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month 1918, the guns fell silent to end the Great War.
Joe invites all to attend at the Cenotaph to pay your respects, “I hope you will join me there.”
