ANZAC Day 2017: Services
Once again our people will gather on ANZAC Day to pay respect to our service people who have partaken in wars across the world. The commemorations will take place at points across our district, organised by our Returned Services Associations.
The Dawn Service will start at 5.15am with a march from the pou in Civic Square to the cenotaph in the city centre. After hymns, wreath-laying, firing volley and reveille, a fly past by the Hawke’s Bay Aero Cub will soar overhead at 6am. Breakfast is being offered at Clubs Hastings, at $2 a head.
A service for ex-service people will be held at the Hawke’s Bay Fallen Soldiers’ memorial Hospital, after which community services will be held across the district over the morning, in Maraekakaho, Clive, Havelock North, Te Hauke and at the Hawke's Bay Fallen Soldiers' Memorial Hospital.
