Port Stephens MP Kate Washington has presented a NSW State Flag to members of the Tea Gardens RSL Sub-Branch to fly on their newly installed flag poles in Anzac Park.
The flag was accepted by Sub-Branch members Raymond Prigg and Paul Colver, who will use the flag in the upcoming Remembrance Day ceremony.
Tea Gardens RSL will be a host for an expanded Remembrance Day ceremony as the sub-branch is joined by members from surrounding Port Stephens sub-branches.
The Remembrance Day event will include at least 100 local school children leading the march, as the RSL recognises the 100 year as the Returned Services League marks its 100 year of supporting returned veterans and their families.
The 2018 Remembrance Day event will be celebrated on Saturday 11 November at Anzac Park on Marine Drive Tea Gardens. Guests are asked to arrive at 10:30am, with the march starting at 10:45am and the Anzac Park ceremony commencing at 11am.
