ANZAC Day is again fast approaching.
Unlike last year, thankfully, we are able to participate, beginning with a badge selling and street stall on April 23.
Any donations of cakes and produce being gratefully accepted.
Although the march and service will be held on Anzac Day, there will be some restrictions to follow regarding COVID-19 regulations.
All participants must arrive early to allow for QR check-in before participating. All participants and spectators are also expected to observe social distancing rules, with anyone feeling unwell being requested stay home.
The dawn march will start the day, beginning with form up at 5.45am, encouraging all ex-service, current serving, uniformed personnel and descendants of our deceased local veterans to march.
Although the Leeton Soldiers Club has now reopened, they have commenced their major renovations.
IN OTHER NEWS:
Added to this the COVID restrictions, the club is not able to provide their usual Anzac Day breakfast following the dawn service, nor the special lunch in such numbers.
However, they have offered to supply food for a local organisation to provide a breakfast for us, in Mountford Park with the mandatory QR-code registration points being provided.
Cost is gold coin donation.
Main march form up is at 9.45am at the court house with necessary QR registration prior for all participants.
This march will also be restricted to school captains, prefects, and leaders of any other local organisations, to reduce the numbers at the cenotaph, allowing required social distancing.
