On Remembrance Day, Friday 11th November 2022, 60 members of the public including Rotarians, RSL members wearing their medals, four councillors from the City of Stirling, WA MP David Michael, as well as the Rotary District Governor 9455, Ineke Oliver, attended a Remembrance Day ceremony at the ANZAC Memorial in Gwelup Park.  Two Rotary guests from France who were on holiday also attended.  They expressed their pleasure at being part of ceremony that is dear to their culture.
Osborne Park RSL President Richard Troughton led the ceremony, with support from a flag bearer and bugler. The dignitaries laid the wreaths and the community joined with respect and honour to the men and women of all the military wars and conflicts.  
After the ceremony everyone returned to the Colin Moore Centre for tea, coffee and biscuits and/or to admire and review the Vintage cars.  It was a great success, and many commented how much they had enjoyed the event.  Definitely a community service event to repeat in years to come
Planning commenced with members of the Osborne Park RSL, Councillor Chris Hatton from the City of Stirling, and representatives from both Rotary clubs.  During the advertising campaign we were offered two vintage military vehicles, by Goldstar transport, to be part of the event.  This aspect, although unexpected, was a great success.  The local Vintage car club members attended with eight old vehicles.  Poppies were available for sale to fund raise for the War widows and children.
This event grew out of our involvement with the Returned Services League (RSL) Osborne Park branch on Anzac Day this year (26th April), where the Club assisted by cooking the sausages for the gunfire breakfast.  We agreed to establish a new event on 11th November at 11 am in memory of the German cease fire in 1918- Remembrance Day.  This was to be at the RSL memorial, constructed by the Rotary Club Karrinyup at Lake Gwelup.  This ceremony was to be followed by morning tea at the Colin Moore Community Centre, opposite the memorial, which is managed by the Rotary Club of Osborne Park.
