ANZAC Day 2019

 

Our ANZAC Day commemorative event will be held this Saturday April 27 at 5:00 pm at the Scandinavian Cultural Centre, 764 Erin.

This is a POTLUCK event – please bring a main, salad, veggie dish, pasta, bread or dessert – enough for yourself and a bit extra for our veteran attendees.

Please join us for this opportunity to honour those who sacrificed so much for our freedom, and to spend some time in the company of fellow members and friends.

“They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.” – For The Fallen, Laurence Binyon.
