ANZAC Day 2021

 

Our ANZAC Day Commemoration services were conducted with a much larger crowd of onlookers and veterans than anticipated. The locals turned out in their thousands for both services and lined the streets for the marching veterans. Conservative estimates for the main service was about five thousand people.  It demonstrated that Anzac Day is a very important and patriotic day for all Australians.

Hervey Bay RSL Sub-Branch President Brian Tidyman hosted the Dawn and Main Services at Freedom Park and Reverend Jeff Jarvis led prayers.

We were honoured to have RAAF Group Captain Graeme Davies taking the parade Salute and he also presented a moving speech to all at the service.

After both services the Hervey Bay RSL & Services Memorial Club hosted a Gunfire Breakfast and Luncheon for Sub-Branch members and their guest/carer.  The functions were a huge success and our thanks go to the RSL Club for the fantastic catering and service.

Two-up and Crown & Anchor were popular events after 1:00pm. 

The ANZAC spirit in Hervey Bay is definitively alive and treasured by our local community

The Hervey Bay RSL Sub-Branch is here to provide Welfare, Pension and Advocacy services not only to its members but also to serving and ex-service persons and their dependents, especially those in need of assistance. We have a committed Support Group who regularly visit veterans in hospital, nursing homes or their own residences. We remember and commemorate those who have served our Country. This is achieved through the organisation of ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day services, Operation RIMAU, and assisting in services remembering Korea, Vietnam, VP Day and RSL funeral services for departed comrades. Hervey Bay has a large RSL Community Link program within local schools and the community who march as a unit under their own banner at ANZAC Day parades. The Sub-Branch sponsors a Legacy Scholarship for wards of Legacy to assist with education costs and the Hervey Bay RSL Community Service Award wherein community service organizations, viz. Volunteer Marine Rescue, State Emergency Service, Rural Fire Service, Life Savers, Police, Ambulance, Fire & Rescue, are invited to nominate a member for their outstanding service to the community, not just their own organisation. We encourage fellowship and mateship and, as a national group, we can effectively lobby the Government. The Hervey Bay RSL Sub-Branch provides effective and efficient management of the Sub-Branch’s assets and resources for the benefit of its members and of the serving members of the Australian Defence Force. We are able to offer contact details for the many affiliated ex-service organisations in the Hervey Bay area, amongst others the Australian Veterans Group Post 1975. On 17 May 1929 the first official meeting of the Pialba Sub Branch of the Returned Sailors’ & Soldiers’ Imperial League of Australia was held in the Pialba Shire Hall.
