We Say/You Say: Anzac Day

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Hamilton Press

Hi Hamilton,

How are you commemorating Anzac Day? What stories have been passed down through your whānau?

April 25 marks the 106-year anniversary of the Gallipoli landings, one of the most costly campaigns for the Allied Forces during World War I.

Anzac dawn and commemorative services up and down the country are scheduled to get underway after widespread cancellations last year, due to the nation being under Alert Level 4 restrictions.

The NZDF have advised of a reduced presence of military personnel at Anzac services due to deployment at MIQ facilities.

You can check out where the Anzac day services are on this interactive map on the RSA website.

Feel free and share your stories below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comments used in the Hamilton Press.

Morrinsville - Want to give something back to your community but not sure how?

Jenna from Morrinsville

You have probably never heard of us, even though we've been around for 100 years.

We're a charitable organisation that isn't centered around politics, religion, and is focused solely upon evaluating both children’s issues and community needs on an on-going basis; conducting service projects to respond to those identified needs specific to that community.

We're called Kiwanis which actually has nothing to do with 'Kiwi' or New Zealand. www.kiwanis.org...

Kiwanis is an International charity and the word is actually an American Indian expression meaning 'We Trade' or 'We Build' with the motto of the organisation being 'Serving the children of the World'

Anyway - that's all a bit full on, if you would like to join a group of like minded people of varying ages, professions, backgrounds and skills who are focussed on helping out, and having fun while doing it - then get in touch.
