Come along to an early ANZAC service at the Harbord Diggers this ANZAC Day from 7.30am Friday 25th April There is no better location to commemorate ANZAC Day than at the iconic Northern Beaches’ establishment Harbord Diggers. Founded by diggers over 80 years ago, this year the club will host a special remembrance service on the morning of Friday 25 April. Harbord Diggers General Manager Dale Hunt said, “Our morning ANZAC service is particularly important to our club given our heritage. “While we maintain our strong legacy throughout the year, ANZAC Day is a day when the community comes together to commemorate and pay tribute to our fallen soldiers and honour those who continue to battle for our freedom.” The Diggers morning service will commence from 8am, with the proceedings to include a traditional parade, wreath laying ceremony, addresses from Manly and Warringah Mayors and a special presentation from a local student, James Passmore who Harbord Diggers recently sponsored to walk the Kokoda Track. 18 year old James from Pittwater House applied for sponsorship under the ClubGRANTS scheme last year. He was chosen to complete the 96-kilometre trek as part of the RSL and Services Club Association Kokoda Youth Leadership Challenge. James wanted to complete the trek to better appreciate the experiences of hardship during conflicts of war. Following his completion of the Kokoda trek in September 2013, he will be reflecting on his journey at this special ANZAC service. “We are looking forward to having James speak on the day and having an opportunity to hear about his experience of Kokoda,” said Dale. The morning service will also feature performances by Sydney Philharmonia’s VOX Choir. VOX is the young adult ensemble of the Sydney Philharmonia Choirs which is Australia’s largest choral organisation who have performed for the Lord of the Rings trilogy films and Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. “We are honoured to be joined on the day by Sydney Philharmonia’s VOX Choir who will perform three special songs at our commemoration service,” added Dale. The Harbord Diggers ANZAC service will be held in the eastern car park of the club commencing at 8am sharp. The parade will assemble from 7.30am at the western car park. Attendees will be invited to a light breakfast and refreshments following the service. “We encourage locals to join us on ANZAC Day at the Diggers, for the Diggers,” concluded Dale.
