Whats Happening at the Emerald RSL

Due to the current Corona virus pandemic and its effect on all residents of Emerald, the Emerald RSL will be closed until Government advice allows us to re-open.

We ask all members and residents to TAKE CARE.

Anzac Day 2020

WE CAN'T STAND TOGETHER - BUT WE STOOD AS ONE

 

Anzac Day 2020 in Emerald

And so it was

Not the same - BUT still the same

While all of Emerald commemorated their Anzac Day privately at home at the end of their driveway,

a few of us attended Anzac Place.

We lit the large Anzac fire, I delivered The Ode and the Last Post was played by our traditional bugler - Tom Saar. I then laid a wreath on behalf of the RSL. Then the kookaburras saluted in the traditional manner.

We missed Puffing Billy.

And then it was over - not the same, BUT still the same. We still "remembered".

After the service our local Ambos sent one of their members over to play the bagpipes. Ronan was amazing and he will be back next year. Check out his recital on the link to our videos below.

During the day many residents and community groups came to Anzac Place to place their wreath on our memorial or pin a poppy on the WW1 plaque. 

Thanks to Matt Cocks and Daz Tidey for assisting on the day - at a safe distance!

Peter Maloney.

Lest We Forget

Remembrance Day 2019

Remembrance Day 2019 in Emerald. We were blessed with sunshine, we heard Jai Thoolen read his poem "Heroes", we listened to Fiona and her story of the Ladd brothers, we heard the EPS students read the Ode, we heard Jules Vines with Greg Hunt sing Jai's poem, we welcomed Neil and his amazing 3RAR Vietnam car, we heard Suzanne Frisk sing the national anthem with Paul on the Didge. And Emerald came to share the service and lay a wreath or a poppy. And stop for a minutes silence.

Lest we Forget.

More photos in our gallery.

Vietnam Vets Daryl Bristowe, Neil Aldred and Bill Black, all served in 3RAR in 1968.

Emerald’s Anzac Day dawn service gave a packed crowd the chance to stop and gain some much-needed perspective about just what it means to live in such a privileged, free country. Gembrook MP Brad Battin and interim CEO of the Emerald Tourist Railway Board, Steve O’Brien, were among those in attendance.

And after The Last Post, kookaburras burst into song in the trees surrounding the now iconic Anzac Place, while the Puffing Billy whistle echoed throughout the town centre.

What Emerald’s dawn service has become, and what it means to its people, is the legacy of the town’s RSL branch, and in particular its tireless members – including the likes of Matt Cocks, and former president Peter Maloney.

“We’re very proud of our dawn service,” Mr Maloney said in his opening comments.

“It’s become part of Emerald now.”

Remembrance Day 2018

Remembrance Day was certainly a day to "REMEMBER" - those 100 Emerald men who went to war in 1914 - 34 never to return and at least 66 who returned to their small home town to their families -  their names listed on the Honour Boards carried from Puffing Billy to Anzac Place by two locals whose descendants were in WW1.

We "planted" 20,000 poppies around Emerald and also covered Puffing Billy as seen in the photo here.

Check out our photo album in our gallery.

We have set up a  Facebook page where you can monitor developments of this community project.

ANZAC WALK 

VIDEO DOCUMENTARY LAUNCH

On July 1st the documentary of the Anzac Walk project was shown at the Gemco Playhouse in Emerald. See gallery.

The feature of the night was the guest appearance of famed singer songwriter Eric Bogle. Eric is featured in the film and graciously accepted our invitation to travel from Adelaide to perform his famous song - "And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda" and a bunch of other songs that were related to the night's theme of remembering our 32 diggers who never returned from WW1.

It was a great magical night attended by over 100 locals who participated in the project plus many of the descendants of the 32. The film was produced by local film maker Christine Weller.

You can read the report of the night in the local Pakenham Gazette.

The video is available for purchase at the Emerald Village Newsagency or by emailing the Club at president@emeraldrsl.com.au. Cost $10 plus postage $3. Email how many and we will post to you.
