RSL Care SA Anzac Day 2018
Anzac Day 2018 Dawn Service
Every ANZAC Day Dawn Service is special and significant at RSL Care SA, and Anzac Day 2018 is certainly no different.
At 6am on Wednesday 25th April, the War Veterans Home will once again be conducting an ANZAC Day Dawn Service which is open to the community, followed by a gun-fire breakfast in the park for those in attendance.
Students from Immanuel College will be attending the ANZAC Day Dawn Service as part of a collaborative art project that the students created themed on ‘Soldiers coming home from war’. The two large panels the students created will be on display during the Dawn service and will be installed within the grounds of the Home afterwards, as a visual gateway for the new discovery path being developed.
Poppy Wall of Remembrance
The poppy Wall of Remembrance has commenced on the front fence of the War Veterans Home along Ferguson Avenue. This year the Wall of Remembrance was started by a group of children from Bertram Hawker kindergarten along with a group of our War Veterans Home residents. The Wall of Remembrance will be in place for the month of April, so if you’re in the neighbourhood or going past, please take a moment to place a poppy on the wall in remembrance for those men and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice serving our country.
An ANZAC Service will also be conducted at the RSL Villas at Angle Park, however, due to renovations and building works occurring, it will be an intimate Anzac service held on Tuesday the 24th of April for residents, families and staff.
The War Veterans Home has a rich history of over 100 years. Find out more about our organisation and the history here
