“Because we have worked together to ensure safety, this year we can safely gather to mark the sacrifices of those who have served”

Last year, Queenslanders were encouraged to step onto their driveway, porch, or porch to commemorate Anzac Day, and RSL Queensland went virtual with its service

A wreath-laying service allowed a small group to attend, including the Lord Mayor of Brisbane Adrian Schrinner, the President of RSL Queensland Tony Ferris, and Ms. Palaszczuk

“We firmly believe that like last year, COVID-19 will not stand between veterans and the grateful community they serve,” he said

“Firstly, we are working with our network of 230 RSL sub-branches to set up local memorial services where these can be safely performed,” he said in a statement

“Second, in response to popular requests from the community, we will once again give the Queenslanders the opportunity to show their support by continuing the memorial service for the personal ascent of Light Up The Dawn at 6am on ANZAC day

“We take the necessary time and care with our sub-branches to carefully plan local memorial activities that will protect the health of veterans and the public”
