ANZAC Day Dawn Service Set For April 25

April 22, 2017

The national day of remembrance for the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps [ANZAC] is approaching, with services set to take place on the morning on Tuesday, April 25 at 6.10am sharp at Victoria Park in Hamilton.

A spokesperson said, “The annual remembrance dawn service for Anzac Day will be respectfully observed at Victoria Park in Hamilton at 06:10 am sharp on Tuesday 25 April 2017.

“This year there will be in attendance, His Excellency The Governor John Rankin, Deputy Governor Mrs Ferson, Lieutenant Colonel CO David Curley, and Senator Jeff Baron.

“We hope to have around 65 people there from the Anzac Community, and again have Anzac Day messages from the respective Prime Ministers and Governor-Generals of Australia and New Zealand.

“While this day originally commemorated dawn landings for a wartime campaign in Turkey in 1915, the day now acknowledges all ANZACs who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations and the contribution and suffering of all those who have served.

“Australians and New Zealanders across the world meet at dawn each year for a remembrance service in their respective countries.”
