Sunday, 14 August 2011 - VP Day March

posted 25 May 2011, 20:56 by Epping Joeys   [ updated 25 Sep 2011, 20:12 ]

Participation in this event will qualify Joeys for the "Their Service, Our Heritage Badge".

Date: Sunday, 14 August, 2011
Time: 1:45pm
Where: Meet in Rawson St., outside the Epping RSL
Dress: FULL uniform is to be worn by all invested members.
There will be a 20 minute Service upstairs in the Grand Ballroom for a 20 minute service.  After this, everyone will form up outside and march up Rawson Street, turn right at the roundabout into Bridge Street then right again into Victoria Street. The march is led by the Golden Kangaroos Marching Band.  There will be a wreath laying ceremony at the Cenotaph where all participants can also lay the poppies given to them earlier at the service.  Everyone will then march back to the RSL where afternoon tea is provided by the RSL.  Parents can pick up their children from the Ballroom from around 3:30 onwards.  Traffic in the streets is stopped by the police to ensure the safety of those marching.  
Parents are welcome to attend the service and the wreath laying ceremony and also follow alongside the march.  They can also join in with the afternoon tea.
Due to the age (both young and quite old) of some of those marching, consideration is always given to the weather.  If rain is imminent, the outdoor component of the activity might be held indoors instead.

Attendance will count towards earning an adventure badge.
