This year’s Anzac Day will be very different due to the restrictions yet there is still a way to honour the Diggers.

Loganeers, as well as the rest of the country, are encouraged to step out onto their driveway, verandah or porch on Anzac Day in honour of the Diggers.

The traditional dawn and morning services have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Clubs and hotels are also closed as part of the shutdown of non-essential services announced by the federal government.

However sub-branches within the local government area have thrown their support behind the move to hold a vigil to coincide with the dawn and morning services.

RSL Queensland chairman Tony Ferris urged people to step out at 6am on Saturday.

“This will be a very different year for us this year, but I see it as being a very symbolic year, because I think this will encapsulate every Australian and get every Australian involved in an Anzac Day dawn service, something we probably haven’t seen for a very, very long time,” he said.

“It’s my belief that we need to do this – step out, socially isolate, and remember those Anzacs.”

While a number of radio stations are getting involved and supporting this idea a full service will be live on the RSL Queensland website for people to follow from start to finish if they wish.
