KAIPARA MEMORIAL RSA
Armistice Day Parade
The Kaipara Memorial RSA will be holding an Armistice Day Parade on Wednesday 11th November at 1100 hours to commemorate the end of World War One, 102 years ago.
The parade will take place outside the RSA clubrooms, 49 Commercial Road, Helensville. Medals should be worn, if wearing your relative’s medals, wear them on the right side. Wreaths will be laid following a short ceremony. Light refreshments will be served in the clubrooms afterwards. For any information, contact Rex Keane 027 293 2768.
Whilst it is common knowledge that you do not need to have served in the military to join your local RSA, the thing that concerns the Kaipara RSA the most is the lack of veterans, ex-service and servicing personnel who are not members. We know there are thousands of Veterans with Operational Service in places like Timor Leste, Iraq, Afghanistan and Vietnam to name a few. The Kaipara RSA is located close to RNZAF Base Whenuapai and the NZ Naval Base at Devonport and we would welcome more service, ex-service members, as well as the citizens living in the local area of Helensville.
The Kaipara RSA sends out a weekly newsletter covering topics from the Army, Navy and Air Force news, Veterans Affairs, RNZRSA, Health and Wellbeing videos, forthcoming Dedications and Commemorations, which are of interest to the whole community. The restaurant and bar are open Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, so call into the club and join up or email; firstname.lastname@example.org.
