Excuse my ignorance - but what is a sub-branch member?

No idea - but I think that's something to do with the Memorial Hall - it's sure nothing to do with HU!

And at a guess, if you don't know what it is either, you're probably not one of the privileged! ;)

(We'll just have to go on the basis that if they won't have us, we'll just find somewhere better! )

A sub branch member is a member of the RSL, but not from this particular branch, so if you are a member anywhere of the RSL, you get in.

Good to see you have researched it Shane. :thumbup1:
It was on our list of things to investigate. I will be up for the Dawn Service ride.

I have organised our own 6 metre flag pole and Aussie flag for the HU Meeting site

More info is coming in by the day, time is moving fast!

ANZAC Day Service - Eumundi
 
Hello again,

The Eumundi township will also be holding a morning ANZAC Day Service, from 7:30 Am to 9:00 Am.

I have often found that the small town services the most moving and for international travellers, this is well worth the effort. Here is the email sent to me from the RSL Sub Branch President at Eumundi:
__________________________________________________ ____

As Eumundi is a community centred town, the ANZAC Day service consists of a returned servicemen led 'community walk' along Memorial Avenue with wreath laying on the WWI and WWII memorial trees in the town., with the appropriate pipe band, speeches etc, school choir, culminating in the Last Post and Rouse followed by the minutes silence at the town's amphitheatre. Eumundi is only one of two towns in QLD with a memorial avenue and is unique in this aspect. We do not hold a dawn service but these are held in nearby, Tewantin/Noosa, Coolum or Cooroy. If you want to go to a dawn service, the one at Coolum can be recommended. A starting time for this is not known at this time but is usually 1 to 1 1/2 hours before dawn.

On this years ANZAC Day, the Sunday Markets in Eumundi will be operating. After the service, which will be from 7:30 am to about 9:00 am, you may wish to visit the markets.

Regards,
Glenn Brown

err, actually no, it hasn't. It WILL be open in a couple of days at most I hope, just waiting for the caterer to come back with the last word on food. Sorry for the delays, but we're all trying our best!

Subscribe to this thread and you will get a notice when it's open.

Just make sure it's on your calendar 'cause it IS happening! :)

TravellingStrom 21 Feb 2010 05:30

Ahh, OK, because I put my name down as a presenter and I registered, I thought it was open, sorry for the confusion.

Cheers
