You are Invited - Lemnos Gallipoli Memorial Commemorative Service, 11am, 12 August 2017, Lemnos Square, Albert Park
As the President of the Lemnos Gallipoli Commemorative Committee I have the pleasure of inviting you all to our annual Commemorative Service at the Lemnos Gallipoli Memorial.
This Memorial commemorates the nurses, diggers and local Lemnians who came together in 1915 during the Gallipoli campaign. It is a permanent reminder of the enduring relationship established between Australia and Greece which has only gained in strength through the decades.
It also raises awareness of the Hellenic connection to the Anzac's. This years event will also feature the official naming of 'Lemnos Square' which is a significant achievement.
The last time a location was named after Lemnos was in 1927 when the soldier settlement town of Lemnos was established in Shepparton. Everyone is welcome.
