Anzac Day centenary commemoration – thank you!

More than 200 people attended our largest ever commemoration of Anzac Day on its centenary yesterday. The Down Under Club of Winnipeg would like to thank all those who attended and contributed to the success of our event.

Many dignitaries, cadets, veterans, club members and interested people from the community participated in a ceremony, followed by an afternoon tea and panel presentation by four speakers on the topic of Lest We Forget Our First World War Mates.

We will share further details on yesterday’s Anzac event on this site.
