LIGHT UP THE DAWN ON ANZAC DAY

This year, stand in your driveway, on your balcony or in your living room to remember all those who have served and sacrificed.

Just imagine how special it would be if every Australian was standing in their driveway at 6am on ANZAC Day, united in spirit to remember all those who have served and sacrificed for the lifestyle we enjoy today.

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.
