ANZAC DAY SERVICE
The Club’s directors, members and families had a busy ANZAC Day.
The Day started with the lantern display at dawn outside the Club house to honour the 38 members of Manly LSC and 8 members of Manly Surf Club that lost their lives in WWI and WWII. The tribute was attended by many Club members and members of the public, who took photos, reflected and remembered our lost Club members.

An extra special thank you to or guest speaker Lieutenant Colonel Jacquie Costello who reflected on her immense experience in the ADF. Club Captains Sophie Stacker and Christopher Kwon represented our Club proudly. Manly others contributed to a special service, including Club members who are currently serving in the ADF: Geoff Costello, Cameron Wise and Sam Judd.
