“Because we have worked together to keep ourselves safe, this year we can safely come together to mark the sacrifices of those who have served”

Last year, the people of Queensland were encouraged to step outside on their driveway, veranda or porch to commemorate Anzac Day and RSL Queensland went virtual with its service

A wreath laying service enabled a small group, including Brisbane Mayor Adrian Schrinner, RSL Queensland President Tony Ferris and Ms Palaszczuk, to attend

“We are determined that, just like last year, COVID-19 will not stand between veterans and the grateful community they have served,” he said

“Firstly, we are working with our network of 230 RSL sub-branches to organize local community commemorations where they can be held safely,” he said in a statement.

“Second, by popular demand from the community, we will once again allow the people of Queensland to show their support by continuing the Light Up The Dawn Personal Alley commemorations at 6 am on the day of the ANZAC

“We take the time and care necessary with our sub-branches to carefully plan local commemorative activities that safeguard the health of veterans and the public”
