ANZAC day will be different this year but there are still ways we can participate and pay our respect to those of our fallen and the Australian service men and women currently serving.
RSL NSW show how you can share the #ANZACSpirit this year:
🔸 Light up the dawn. At 6am on ANZAC Day, go to the end of your driveway or stand on your balcony and listen to a brief commemorative service. Together – even while apart – we’ll remember those who served and sacrificed. You can sign the pledge to light up the dawn at rslanzacspirit.com.au
🔸Record yourself reciting the ode or sharing a message of support for veterans. Respond “Going” to the ANZAC Day 2020 Facebook event. Then use the hashtag #ANZACSpirit and share how you’ll be commemorating privately, as well as who you’ll be remembering this ANZAC Day.
🔸Tune into live services and virtual commemorative services. The ABC will be broadcasting a 5:30am service from the Australian War Memorial in Canberra. There will also be a 10am service from the Anzac Memorial in Sydney that will be broadcast on ABC and streamed live.
🔸Reach out to a mate who might be alone. Many people are alone during this time of isolation. It’s an opportunity to invoke the ANZAC value of mateship and check to see how a mate is doing.
