Anzac Day 2015

(Due to technical difficulties there have not been posts on this website for some time.)

Theme for this year’s Anzac Day will be the commemoration of 100 years since the Gallipoli campaign.

We are honoured that our guests this year will include descendants and relatives of the 11 AGL employees who were killed in this campaign together with relatives of others on the Memorial.

Contact has been made with many relatives of those on the Memorial and we are always keen to get messages from others via this website.

This is an open invitation for relatives to contact us and to participate in our Anzac Day ceremonies.

This year local residents in the knitting groups have created red poppies which we will display around the memorial. Each poppy will be individually named. There will be one named for each of the 45 soldiers on our Memorial plus others requested by local residents (via a donation to Legacy) in memory of someone special to them.

Format of Anzac Day:

6.00am Dawn Service. Assemble by 5.45am at the area beside the War Memorial.

7.00am. BBQ breakfast provided by the Rotary Club of Breakfast Point. Donations for Legacy will be requested during the breakfast.

10.30am – 3.00pm. Display of memorabilia in the Country Club Boardroom from 10.30am and exhibits are requested from residents.

10.30am – 11.30am. Tentative time for a Presentation in the Country Club Dining Room on Gallipoli including the gravesites of the AGL casualties.

12.00pm. Lunch in the Country Club. Bookings now open.

2.00pm. Two Up in the Club. Same format as last year, social betting only (ie play money will be given to each table ) with prizes for the winning table.

Further updates will be provided as necessary.

    While we would love to join the Breakfast Point Anzac Day service this year, Ryan and I will be attending the services at Gallipoli having been successful in the direct descendents ballot. We’ve tried to prepare ourselves as best we can for this experience but know that it will be a very emotional time as we honour all those who fell at Gallipoli including my great grandfather, Thomas Lloyd Heath. Heartfelt thanks again to Greg for his wonderful research which has been the catalyst for this journey, and to all of the Breakfast Point community for continuing to honour the men of the AGL. We will be sure to send through some photos. Kind regards Kerrie Kelly
