How You Can Commemorate ANZAC Day 2020
There’s no doubt that ANZAC Day 2020 will be very different to ANZAC Days of previous years. While we will not be gathering at services or marches, there are still ways to acknowledge ANZAC Day and ensure Australian servicemen and servicewomen are appropriately remembered.
- Record yourself reciting the ode or sharing a message of support for veterans.Respond “Going” to our ANZAC Day 2020 Facebook event. Then use the hashtag #ANZAC Spirit and share how you’ll be commemorating privately, as well as who you’ll be remembering this ANZAC Day.
- 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
- 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.
