Remembrance Day and Dedication Services
Sunday 11 November 2018 Commencing at 10.40am At the Cenotaph, Main Road, Toukley
To commemorate the centenary, marking one hundred years since the signing of the Armistice signifying the end of WW1, Toukley RSL Sub Branch will be conducting a Memorial Service and also a Dedication Service for two bronze statues. These statues will not only serve as a reminder to all those who have served our country and to those who paid the supreme sacrifice but also act as guardians for the current 408 veterans whose ashes are interred in the Memorial Gardens. Lest We Forget
Monthly meetings are held in the first floor meeting room at the Toukley RSL Club on the first Monday of each month at 1000hrs. All members are encouraged to attend to involve themselves in sub-branch activities. Refreshments are available following the meetings.
This is the day that commemorates the official end of hostilities in the Great War of 1918. It is 100 years since this great conflict started. But this year is the Centenary of the signing of the armistice signifying 100 years since the peace accord was signed; it is an opportunity to recall and give thanks to the men and women who gave their lives in the service of their country.

Toukley RSL Sub Branch will be holding a service on Remembrance Day, details will follow.
This is a special day for all Australians. It is our opportunity to remember and honour the sacrifice that our service men and women made in times past to ensure that we enjoy the freedoms we do today. It is also an appropriate day to remember the ongoing service our men and women of the Navy, the Army and the Air Force continue to provide and in particular those who have fallen in the line of duty. For a full background on ANZAC Day, see ANZAC Day Ceremonies in Sydney.
They shall grow not old,as we that are left grow old,
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn,
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning,
We will remember them
Lest We Forget
