I would like to invite you all to attend one or both of our Anzac Day activities this Saturday! This Anzac day will be like no other but hopefully, we can show our support to our veterans regardless!
We will start the day off at dawn, joining a live stream of the National Commemorative Service live from The Australian War Memorial in Canberra!
Time:Join the meeting from 05:25AM Saturday 25th April(Ode and last post will be about 0600) (expected finish 0615)

- A device capable of joining a zoom meeting from your driveway (phone, tablet, laptop)
- Your uniform and scarf

SECOND PART – Time: 11:25AM Saturday 25th April
(duration about 30 minutes) Join us for the ABC broadcast of a quiet reflection ceremony, again via zoom.This reflection will include The Ode and Last Post, followed by a one-minute silence to mark when the first Australian troops landed on the Gallipoli Peninsula on April 25, 1915.
ZOOM LINK – https://zoom.us/j/95941560024?pwd=MDlvTjRWRmJ5dmVqaWg1MVZGYUN3QT09 (same link as above)Please note mics will be muted for both these events. Please leave them muted unless absolutely necessary, as it will ruin the experience for others!
Attending these two ceremonies will qualify you for your “Their Service – Our Heritage” Badge(If you can’t attend both, check out our closed Facebook group – facebook.com/groups/WaverleyValleyScouts – this week for some activities you can potentially combine a couple with 1 of the ceremonies to get the badge!)
“…and in the morning we will remember them.” Lest We Forget!
