The Epping RSL will be commemorating the Centenary of Armistice Day on Sunday 11th November, 2018.
Current members are invited to meet at the rear of the Coles car park at 10:15 am for a 10:30 start.    There will be a service at the Cenotaph followed by a wreath laying ceremony.  Parents are welcome to participate in the event or pick up their children from the Cenotaph from around 11:15 onward.
As we are on show to the public and representing the Scout Movement, particular attention must be placed on appearance.  You are expected to wear FULL uniform.  this includes your section shirt, scarf and woggle.  For Joeys, wear stone coloured or grey school trousers or similar.  For Cubs and older, the current style is the Snowgum zip-off pants in stone colour or similar or school trousers.  Shoes should be black or brown (no runners please).  Jeans are not considered as part of the uniform and should not be worn.
Page 1 of this E1 Activity Notification Form is to be completed for each non-member who is attending this activity.  Please bring page 1 with you on the day and give it to one of the Epping Leaders.  Current members are to use the CareMonkey invitation and NOT this form.  
Participation in this event will go towards achieving this annual badge.  It is awarded to Joeys for attending 1 of these events, to Cubs for attending 2 of these events and Scouts, Venturers and Rovers for attending 3 events within each calendar year.  Participation in other military activities/events will also go toward being awarded this badge.  Please notify your Section Leader (by email) if you have participated in other relevant activities, eg participation at school or other events.
