Resources for families to access will be made available on Facebook and the sub branch website (northamrsl.com) to encourage discussion about Anzac Day. These resources include a picture of the Australian Flag, poppies and a Anzac lantern, these items could then be used as decorations for the home service on Anzac Day.
The community is encouraged to utilise local radio broadcasts of both the Dawn Service and the 11am Anzac Service. Check local guides for details.
At 11am at the Northam Memorial, Northam RSL President Mick Prytulak, will lay a wreath on behalf of the Service Community other wreaths can be laid by the President representing the organisation.
There will be a flyover at this time viewable from most homes in Northam.
