200 members of the Australian and New Zealand community are expected to gather to lay a wreath while a bugler plays The Last Post.
ANZAC Day, traditionally April 25th, is one of the most significant national days of pride for Australian and New Zealanders, wherever they live across world.
This traditional Dawn Service aims to remember the fateful morning in 1915 when Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) soldiers landed to fierce opposition on the Gallipoli (Turkey) coast during World War I.
With a vibrant and growing Australian and New Zealand community in Seattle, the Service provides a unique opportunity, while living away from home shores, to celebrate the “ANZAC Spirit”, pay respect to the 8000 men killed in the Gallipoli campaign, and also remember the sacrifices made by all armed forces.
Event Sponsors: Logic20/20, ANZAS Organization, and Kangaroo and Kiwi
