The Nerang RSL Sub Branch and Nerang RSL Memorial Club is preparing for a bumper crowd at its Anzac Day service with over 10,000 people expected to unite and pay their respects.
Renowned as one of the Gold Coast’s biggest services, Nerang RSL Sub Branch and Nerang RSL Memorial Club prides itself on respecting tradition while also engaging younger generations through cutting edge technology.
A 3D holographic production incorporating a theatrical performance by Nerang State High School drama students was introduced in 2015 and has grown to become such a draw card, visitors come as far from Brisbane and northern New South Wales to attend.
With 2018 marking the final year of the Anzac Centenary, President of Nerang RSL Sub Branch, Stewart McGettigan, says the Club’s 2018 ANZAC Day service is expected to be larger than ever before.
“The Nerang RSL Sub Branch and Nerang RSL Memorial Club’s Anzac Day service is renowned in the community as our biggest and most respected annual event, allowing locals to unite and pay their respects.” he said
“We are expecting over 10,000 people to attend the service which this year marks the final year of the Anzac Centenary, a period commemorating 100 years since Australia’s involvement in the First World War.
“Our 3D holographic display has proven to be very captivating and each year servicemen, families and youth reflect in awe of what is projected in-front of them. It provides an opportunity in the quiet and peaceful moments before dawn, to watch and reflect upon the courage, comradeship and sacrifice engrained in the vision before them.
“It’s a truly captivating morning of remembrance and one that Nerang RSL Sub Branch and Nerang RSL Memorial Club puts a lot of effort into, to respect and pay tribute to those past and present.”
Between 2014 and 2018, the nation has commemorated the Anzac Centenary – a period in time that has contributed to shaping our people and nation.
The Anzac Ceremony will not only remember the original Anzac’s, but serve as a commemoration for those servicemen and women who have been involved in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations over the past 100 years.
Nerang RSL Sub Branch and Nerang RSL Memorial Club’s Dawn Service will commence at 4.45am to recapture the quiet moments in the near-darkness, when soldiers had an opportunity to bond and reflect.
