ANZAC Day

Dear Sainters

As we are all aware a lot of things have been put on hold and in hibernation to a later date but one thing that can’t be put on hold and more importantly one thing that we cannot forget about and that is for all of us to pay our respect this ANZAC Day to all the men and women who served and died in all wars, conflicts & peacekeeping operations, to allow us to live as we do today in our great country.

We may not be able to buy our ANZAC badges or attend a dawn service on Saturday but we can do what is all over social media and on the news and that is to all stand at the end of our driveway just before dawn (6am) and stand for a minute silence.

Yes we are living in tough times at the moment but the light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter each day and on Saturday we need to put all our troubles behind us and think about and reflect what these brave men and women went through as they fought for the Australian Flag.

For the last 3 years, our great friend from the Ringwood RSL, David Kelly has come down to Quambee to present our Senior boys with their ANZAC Jumpers (Donated by the Victorian RSL) and also to help us run our ANZAC Day ceremony before the start of our Senior match.

David served one year with the Engineers in Vietnam at Nui Dat during in his 3 years of National Service and is now on the committee at the Ringwood RSL.

David loves coming down to our club and has made a lot of friends with our players and members and due to not being able to come down this year, David has made a video (use link below) and recited “The Ode” for all in our Saints community.

“The Ode”

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.
