ANZAC Day Reception at the Navy Officers Mess

Tuesday, May 12th, 2015, 6 - 8pm

The Australia & New Zealand Wine Society proudly invites you to attend our Annual ANZAC Day Reception. This year we will pay homage to the ANZAC spirit and legend at the Navy Officers Mess on Lisgar Street, conveniently located downtown across from City Hall.

You will enjoy a carefully balanced selection of Australian and New Zealand wines courtesy of Jason Hands of Delegat Canada, with delicious hors d'oeuvres selectively paired to enhance the flavours of both.

This event is to pay homage to our ANZACS. In Australian and New Zealand this day of remembrance is marked by a national holiday to respect those who gave their lives, those adventurous individuals who were far away from home. On ANZAC day we have the opportunity, wherever we are in the world, to honour and respect the Australian and New Zealand service men and women who served their countries, and also to think of those who are presently engaged in conflict zones around the world.

Australia will commemorate the Anzac Centenary, marking 100 years since our nation's involvement in the First World War. The Anzac Centenary is a milestone of special significance to all Australians. The First World War helped define us as people and as a nation. During the Anzac Centenary we will remember not only the original ANZACs who served at Gallipoli and the Western Front, but commemorate more than a century of service by Australian servicemen and women.
