The Violet Town RSL Sub Branch is a small but active group.
We meet each month at the Violet Town RSL venue known as the ‘Ted Armstrong Rooms’ in the Community Complex in Cowslip St. Please contact our secretary for the next date and time.
Our organisation is dedicated to honouring those who have served our nation through military service and we believe that the care of veterans and their dependants remains our core role.
ANZAC Day- 25 April every year
- 06:00 hrs. - Dawn Service at the Boer War memorial on the Community Centre lawn in Cowslip Street.
- 10:00 hrs. - ANZAC Day march along Cowslip Street from Lily Street to the memorial where the wreath laying and commemorative service is conducted. Arrive early to join the parade.
Remembrance Day - 11 November every year

We fundraise through both the annual ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day appeals.
Support for our local veterans and their families is through referrals to ANZAC House facilities and services, as well as responding through the Welfare and Patriotic fund support. We also conduct hospital and nursing home visits upon request.
New members are always welcome to join, either as service members or affiliate members.
Members of the RSL maintain two Avenues of Honour in Violet Town, a WWI one in Cowslip and Orchid Sts, and WWII in Hyacinth St.
