Hazelwood and Churchill (Victoria, Australia) local Girl Guide information noticeboard.

A.N.Z.A.C. March in Yinnar

The Hazelwood / Churchill District Girl Guides have been invited to participate in the Yinnar Anzac Day March and Ceremony on 25th April most years.

We meet at 8.30am in the main street of Yinnar – near the General Store gathering together before and after the Parade. Guides will be required to wear full Guide Uniform as a mark of respect for ‘those fallen’ military personal that this remembrance day is about.

It would be appreciated if the Guides have eaten prior to this as there is no food or drinks served and it is a fairly lengthy Ceremony. Names, transport arrangements and contact numbers are necessary at least one week before so that no one misses out.

Yes please bring some flowers as everyone is asked to lay something at the memorial.

Also the Girls are requested to bring some money for putting into the collection plate during the service.

As preparation for this event the Guides usually spend some time learning and practising to march and what flags are for.  Guides Horse Shoe, Promise ceremonies and other traditions gradually help prepare the Guides for this day.

Any queries please speak to Sue or Debbie before the event.  [ Sometimes Sue or Debbie may not be able to participate]
