Council is encouraging all locals to support ‘Light up the Dawn’ to remember and pay respects from home in a 6am driveway vigil. The concept reminds Australians that the qualities of the ANZACs live within all of us. And how, in these challenging times, we must invoke the ANZAC spirit more than ever. This can take several forms including from your home, the end of your driveway or a balcony. Spread the word and register your home today.
ANZAC Day Service and March Cancelled
Further to the media release from RSL Queensland and their advice to all Sub Branches to cancel ANZAC Day commemorations in light of the emerging COVID-19 public health emergency, RSL Ipswich and Council wish to advise that the Main ANZAC Day March and the Dawn Service and Wreath Laying at the Honour Stone, RSL Memorial Gardens will be cancelled for 2020.
Smaller commemoration activities held by RSL Sub Branches across the region are also cancelled.
While this is very disappointing for our community, it is important that we do not risk the health of our older veterans, their family members or members of the general public.
We appreciate your understanding in these unprecedented times.
