Brooklyn keas, cubs, scouts and venturers have a long and proud tradition of supporting ANZAC day commemorations. It is an important part of fulfilling our Promise: our duty to our country.
This year we have been invited to lead the parade behind the RSA members (it’d be great to see as many youth as possible in the new uniform). The Group is working on getting ANZAC day badges for all those who attend to be presented by an RSA representative at a subsequent evening.
To learn more about ANZAC day, read about it on NZ’s online encyclopedia, TeAra. And see maps of the original battlefield.

After the service the parade will march from the Church down to the Community Center for morning tea.
