ANZAC DAY

Anzac Day is an important national occasion and a time to pause and reflect on the bravery and sacrifice made by our servicemen and servicewomen during two World Wars, other conflicts and peacekeeping operations, to remember those who gave their lives, those who returned home from war ill or maimed and those who have lived with the terrible memories of their war experiences. We also remember the Families of the sons and daughters who never returned as well as families of our wounded warriors, and prayers for those still away from home to return safely.

Try and get down to your local Dawn service and participate in a time honoured Australian tradition, please also encourage the younger generation to come along and participate in the spirit of ANZAC Day. It is important that our young understand and recognise the sacrifices made by those who have served our country.

LEST WE FORGET

As an ex-serving RAN Officer I am very impressed with this initiative. Although I have only one yak, I would be happy to donate 3 rods and reels, a Plano tackle box, UV fishing shirt and some tackle if that helps.

Wow that's awesome thanks heaps...

Can you send an email to howaus@howaus.org and Patrick our fundraising/sponsorship coordinator will contact you directly.

Every little bit helps, even standing in the water and helping with launching and initial stability support..

To be honest Ian,

You can sit back and hang crap on anyone you like especially if it makes you feel better..
I will mention your thoughts to the committee for follow up.

The links on the bottom of this post can direct you to our social networking page which messages were sent out..

And yep I am back in the country for 2 weeks and am going fishing with other howaus people..

Please come along..

Our annual Agm is on tomorrow night 7pm.. There will be a big report after that..
On a quick note, in 2014 we had over 100 vets on the water, mostly in NSW and Qld with a few in Vic. We are very much active across the nation, with hopefully in 2015 new chapter's opening in nsw and Qld..

As volunteers and a committee of 6, we do what we can and hopefully each year we can do more and more.

We thank our sponsors individually with a hand shake and certificate when we can and they do support us well, with equipment supplied to NSW and Qld to be able to take warriors and families out on the water safely.

Unfortunately we are not as active on the forums as we would like, but all the HowAus threads are subscribed to and will be answered as are the numerous pvt msg's we receive throughout the year.

Our posts on Facebook each have a reach of upwards of 1000 people, through followers which is over 700 and through shares that reach our people stationed in other countries.

We do our best and hopefully each year we are able to do better..

Andrew
