We received a letter from the President of the Forest Lake RSL Sub-branch inviting you and your members (and cars) to attend our ANZAC Day Parade and Commemoration Service at the Forest Lake Amphitheatre on Tuesday 25 April, 2017.
They are hoping, this year, to include some vintage vehicles in our parade to transport some of their members who are unable to march.
In previous years, they transported some who are unable to march in their bus, but they do not feel part of the parade. It would be great to have them feel more involved. And it would be such a great experience for these members to be transported in historic vehicles.
Indications are, there are approx. 16 people would like to be transported. If more QHMC members (and their vehicles) would like to participate, they will gladly include you in their March/Parade.
There is ample car parking available for your vehicles at the Amphitheatre where they hold the Service.
The Parade assembles in High Street at 8.30 am and steps off at 9.00 am.
The parade travels down Forest Lake Boulevard, past the saluting dais to The Esplanade Car Park where the service is held.
Last year they had approx. 6000 attend their Service.
The Commemoration Service commences at 9.30 am and concludes at 11.00 am.
Afterwards, they gather at the Bowls Club for a BBQ and drinks.
Please let me know if you and your members are able to participate and help our with this cause. Please email me.
