ANZAC Service & BBQ – April 28, 2019

The Royal Canadian Legion encourages all members in the San Francisco Bay Area to attend this event.  For those that are unaware, ANZAC Day is celebrated on the anniversary of the Battle of Gallipoli.  While the main Allied combatants were from Australia and New Zealand, there was a British contingent there in the form of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment.  This was some ~35 years before Newfoundland would join Canada.

On behalf of the Australian and New Zealand communities in San Francisco, it is our honour to invite you to attend the annual ANZAC Day service to be held in San Francisco on Sunday 28 April 2019.

ANZAC Day is observed by the people of Australia and New Zealand in official recognition of the first time the two young nations fought together overseas in a major way.

This historic event took place in 1915 at Gallipoli on the Turkish Peninsular and is commemorated by expatriates, as well as their countrymen at home, acknowledging the ultimate sacrifice made by so many at that time and in subsequent conflicts.

Following the ceremony at the Log Cabin, there will be a BBQ with light refreshments and a no host bar. There is also plenty of room for a game of cricket or footy.
Date: Sunday April 28, 2019

Location: Lob Cabin, Presidio

Time: 11am Service, 12pm BBQ

Please purchase your BBQ tickets to assist with catering. 

BBQ Tickets: $25 per person and $15 per child.

The Anzac Centenary is a milestone of special significance to all Australians. The First World War helped define us as a people and as a nation.

During the Anzac Centenary we will remember not only the original Anzacs who served at Gallipoli and the Western Front, but commemorate more than a century of service by Australian servicemen and women.

The Anzac Centenary Program encompasses all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations in which Australians have been involved.

The Program aims to give all Australians the opportunity to honour the service and sacrifice of all those who have worn our nation’s uniform, including the more than 102,000 who have made the supreme sacrifice.

It also aims to encourage all Australians to reflect upon and learn more about Australia’s military history, its costs and its impacts on our nation.
