San Francisco ANZAC Service & BBQ
On behalf of the Australian, New Zealand and Turkish communities in San Francisco, it is our pleasure to invite you to attend the annual ANZAC DAY Memorial Service to be held in San Francisco on Sunday April 23rd.
ANZAC Day is officially observed by the people of Australia and New Zealand in remembering the first time the two young nations fought together in a major overseas way. This historic event took place in Gallipoli on the Turkish Peninsular in 1915 and is commemorated by expatriates, as well as their countryman at home, acknowledging the sacrifice made by so many then and in subsequent international conflicts.
Following the ceremony, there will be a no host BBQ with refreshments at the Log Cabin.
There is also plenty of room for a game of cricket or footy.
Date: Sunday April 23, 2017
Time: 11am Service | 12:30pm BBQ
BBQ Costs: $22 Adults | $12 children
Please purchase your BBQ tickets online by April 15th, 2017 to assist with catering.
Note: Limited number of tickets sold at the event.
During the Anzac Centenary we will remember not only the original Anzacs who served at Gallipoli and the Western Front, but commemorate more than a century of service by Australian servicemen and women.
The Anzac Centenary Program encompasses all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations in which Australians have been involved. The Program aims to give all Australians the opportunity to honour the service and sacrifice of all those who have worn our nation’s uniform, including the more than 102,000 who have made the supreme sacrifice. It also aims to encourage all Australians to reflect upon and learn more about Australia’s military history, its costs and its impacts on our nation.
