Commemorate Anzac Day in Logan City

Published: 23 Apr 2014

Logan City Council has provided $26,500 to six Logan City RSL sub-branches this year to help commemorate the 99th anniversary of Anzac Day.

Governance, Finance and Economic Development Chairperson, Councillor Luke Smith (Division 6), said Council had a long history of providing funding to RSLs for local Anzac Day events.

“Anzac Day services mean a lot to the local community,” he said.

“Council works closely with local RSL branches every year to ensure appropriate funding is provided for the equipment they need to host Anzac Day services including sound systems, staging, entertainment and traffic management.”

Cr Smith said Anzac Day dawn vigils, marches, memorial services and games of Two-Up would again be held across the city this year.

“Anzac Day holds special significance for Australians as a day to reflect on the sacrifice made by those who have served in previous conflicts as well as those who continue to serve,” he said.

“I encourage everyone to take part in a local Anzac Day service with their families and to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice and those who continue to serve our country.”

Mayor Pam Parker thanked local RSLs for their contribution to keeping the Anzac spirit alive.

“Our RSL branches help the community commemorate Anzac Day and ensure the spirit of the Anzacs continues with our younger generations,” she said.

“On behalf of the Logan City community, I thank those who have served and continue to serve. Their sacrifice means we can all enjoy the freedom we have today.”

Anzac Day commemorates the landing of Australian and New Zealand Army Corps at Gallipoli on 25 April 1915 in an attempt to capture the Gallipoli peninsula and knock Turkey out of the war. More than 8,000 Australian soldiers were killed during the eight-month campaign.
