We Remember Them.
The Papakura RSA on Elliott Street served our local community for many years. As times have changed the doors have now closed however we continue to Support & Remember our Veterans along with holding the Annual Dawn Services.
If you're looking for a new local club to attend we'd recommend contacting The Papakura Club on Croskery Road.
Supporting & Remembering Our Veterans.
Armistice Day, also known as remembrance day, took effect on the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. It commemorates the armistice signed between the allies of the World War 1 and Germany at Compiegn, France for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front.
Armistice can too often focus on battles and conflicts rather than the men and women affected by them. However, the focus and purpose of the Armistice day is to remember those that fought in the war. It is the opportunity remember and honour those that lost their lives and reflect upon the human cost of war and the importance of their sacrifice for peace.
