Despite challenges associated with the pandemic, restricting our ability to gather in person, we have lots to bring us together in other ways. Read it now!
The video is online and the reviews are in. The video by Brian Rougeau of our Winnipeg Fundraiser for the Australian Bushfires is “beautifully done”, “incredibly moving”, “a powerful testament to all the work you did”, and viewers “… can’t stop watching it”.
If you haven’t seen the video yet, be sure to check it out today. And please take a moment to “like” the video and subscribe to our YouTube channel. We only need 100 subscribers to get a dedicated name for our channel, and then we can start adding more videos about the club and other interesting topics.
Stay safe, well and happy, everyone!
The new Southern Yarn is ready online, and this month there is a bonus page (p 9) of photos for those of you lucky enough to download it!
Many of our anticipated events will be impacted by the Covid-19 restrictions, but perhaps now more than ever, we value our connections with one another, even if meeting in person is harder to achieve.
Here’s Charlie’s editorial to get your started:
One thing I enjoy about this “job” (as editor of The Yarn newsletter) is hunting for good news stories to share. So, it is encouraging to find a good number of sites devoted to offering just that. You will find some of them in the following pages.
Although our ANZAC Day event on April 25th has been cancelled, there are other ways to participate in ceremonies in Australia and New Zealand to commemorate all the ANZACs who fought and died for our freedom. Remember that services on April 25th are in fact on April 24th for us here in Canada:
- standatdawn.com/home – RNZ Defence Force
- awm.gov.au/commemoration/anzac-day – Australian War Memorial
- abc.net.au/radio/brisbane/anzac-day-2020/12132330 – ABC Radio
- dva.gov.au/commemoration/personal-commemorations – mark the day in your own way with your family
And in case you’ve not called down under recently, the time difference for ANZAC Day is:
- Sydney = 15 hours ahead … 5:30 am Sydney Apr 25 = 2:30 pm Winnipeg Apr 24
- New Zealand = 17 hours ahead … 6:00 am Wellington Apr 25 = 1:00 pm Winnipeg Apr 24
Hopefully this will help you all participate in ANZAC Day this year.
Lest we forget.
