ANZAC DAY 2011 - Dawn Service
Battery Park, New York, NY
MiG will be singing the USA and Australian National Anthems at both this year's official Anzac Day Ceremonies in New York City.
ANZAC Day is when we pause to remember those Australians and New Zealanders killed in war, to honour returned servicemen and servicewomen and to pay tribute to those personnel who are currently serving their countries. Although its timing recalls the landing at Gallipoli of the Australia and New Zealand Army Corps on 25 April 1915, the Commemorative Service is for all those who have given their lives during conflict.
A Sunday Service will be held on Sunday 24th April commencing at 10.30am at the ANZAC Memorial Garden on the roof of the Rockefeller Center, 620 Fifth Avenue, New York. The entrance to the Garden is on the south side of West 50th Street. In the event of inclement weather, the service will be held in the room adjacent to the Garden.
A Dawn Service will also be held at 6am on Monday 25th April at the East Coast Memorial in Battery Park, New York. The Service will be held rain or shine – we encourage you to come prepared with warm clothing & an umbrella in case of inclement weather.
Both Services will be co-hosted by the Australian and New Zealand Consuls General.
Entry to the Sunday Service: Please carry photo identification (for example US ID card, driver’s license or passport). Bags may be searched before being granted access to the Garden. Numbers will be restricted for the Sunday Service; therefore arrive early to be guaranteed entry.
Due to the nature of the Services, respectful attire is requested.
Age limit: All ages
