HONOURING THEIR MEMORY -
ANZAC DAY COMMEMORATIVE SERVICE
On Saturday 25 April 2015, our nation will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corp – the ANZACs – landing at Gallipoli.
Anzac Day is a day of national commemoration when we pause to remember Australia’s servicemen and women who served our nation with pride and valour in wars, conflicts and peace operations.
You are invited to come along to the Bassendean War Memorial, which is now located in the newly created Civic Gardens at the corner of Guildford Road and Wilson Street Bassendean, and join in the Town’s Anzac Day Commemorative Service.
When: 11.00am Saturday 25 April
The official poppy making sessions have now concluded, however a group of makers will continue to meet on Wednesdays from 10am – 11.30am alternating between either the Red Poppys Café or The Tasty Pear in the shopping centre.
Poppies can still be delivered to our collection baskets up until Monday 20 April – baskets are located at the Customer Service Centre, the Memorial Library and The Tasty Pear.
Our count to date is 900, not including the 50 we sent to the 5000 Poppies Project in Melbourne's Federation Square.
The poppies will be attached to netting as part of an installation for our ANZAC Centenary Service at the new War Memorial. Volunteers are welcome to assist us with this on Wednesday 22nd April, Thursday 23rd April, and Friday 24th April between 10am and 2pm in the Library Meeting Room.
