Australian and New Zealanders gather at dawn Apr 23 to honor Fallen Soldiers

Thursday, April 13, 2017

The Australian and New Zealand communities of Seattle will gather for their Traditional ANZAC Day Dawn Service 5:30am, Sunday April 23rd at Lake Union Park, 860 Terry Avenue (near the MOHAI), Seattle, followed by coffee and light breakfast courtesy of Kangaroo and Kiwi.

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: Logic20/20ANZAS Organization, and Kangaroo and Kiwi
