Marchers to assemble in Curtis Park between Dumaresq St. and Dumaresq Creek at 09:45. Some scouts will be needed to carry identification placards for the various groups in the parade. Scouts Armidale also has a group position in the parade (following the Red Cross and before the SES according to the plan I have).
The parade commences at 10:30 and will move South (uphill) along Faulkner Street to Central Park. The commemoration service will commence at 11:00 in Central Park and the scout group will be laying a wreath. This year our wreath has been made by our group secretary (thank you Sarah!). The service will conclude by 12:00 and this will also be the end of the scout activity.
Scouts will be assembled as a group near the cenotaph to be picked up. From 12:00 there will be a BBQ in Central Park, a static military equipment display, the town band and pipe band will be playing and there will be a variety of activities for children. The RSL is encouraging families to stick around and enjoy this part of the day. Please note that leaders will not be providing supervision for scouts during the Central Park activities that occur after the formal ceremonies end at noon. The activity coordinator and another leader or adult will remain with scouts near the cenotaph until all have been returned to parents. In the event of wet weather, there is a wet weather plan to hold the ceremonies in the auditorium of the Ex-Services Club.
Uniform: Please wear your scout shirt and scarf. Cream or bone pants if you have them. If not, please wear blue jeans or navy blue pants. Please wear black or brown shoes and wear a wide brim hat.
Any questions please contact the Group Leader, Mark Shepheard: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone details on the form.
