ANZAC Day – CANCELLED
April 25 @ 5:30 am - 1:00 pmFREE
In light of the emerging Coronavirus public health emergency, and following on from the advice received by RSL Queensland on the 16th of March 2020, the Board of Directors of the Cairns RSL Sub Branch have agreed to cancel the ANZAC Day Dawn Service.
The Directors wish to express their dismay at having to make this decision. Ensuring the health and well-being of all members of our Defence Family has been paramount in their decision making, and believe it is the responsible thing to do, especially considering that older veterans are particularly at risk from this virus.
At the next meeting of the Board of Directors of the Cairns RSL Sub Branch will be considering options for commemorating ANZAC Day without placing veterans and the general public at risk.
The Board wishes to ensure Our Defence Family and the general community, that regardless of the form this year’s ANZAC Day Dawn Service will take, we will always remember the dedication, commitment and sacrifice of our Defence forces, past and present.
President Kristen Rice
