Anzac Day 2019

The 2018 Anzac Service in Burwood Park was attended by a very large crowd. Burwood RSL Sub Branch and Club partnered with Burwood Council to host the service where all the community were welcome. Due to the success of the service the 3 organisations have agreed to conduct the 2019 Service similarly to this years’ service.

On behalf of the Board of Directors, Management and Staff, I wish all members a Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year. Additionally, I extend thanks to all members for your continued support and contribution to ongoing success of the Club.
