Sincere thanks to all that assisted and participated in this years ANZAC Day Service.

Great food and always good to hear a few local slang sayings.

yup Rob,and team ( and Paul ) well done from this Kiwi.
you Aussie's can be a one eyed lot sometimes, but Rob your Anzac service catered well for vets, and non vets, from both countries, ( and included Thailand as well. A nice touch.)
amazed at your hospitality of free beers and great food..
Well done Mate...

Thanks Waz and maaka for your comments and they will be passed onto the staff and tireless volunteers who made the day a success. It was a bloody hot day out there under the sun and I cannot recall anyone really complaining about the heat, there was a greater issue at hand rather than the weather. And a great job from the parade marshall, Mr Tony R,(ex vet) and Paul C my counterpart from New Zealand who delivered a memorable speech from the Kiwi side.

Also thank you to the Royal Thailand Army for their attendance as guests and I did find out later some of them actually googled ANZAC and they realised why it is a significant day in Australian and New Zealand history, and they showed their respects towards it.

To all the people who attended, thank you for attending and making this day a success, without your support it would not have been possible. And a special thanks to Waz, John (Perth road man) and grevious for your donations and a special one for Nat (Jims wife) who spent Sunday making the fat free chocolate munchies for your enjoyment, nice one Nat. ANZAC Day 2017 will have more seats and 2 large marquees for the sun and rain for your comfort.

We all hope to see you in 2017 and thank you, Rob

On Monday at your ANZAC Day ceremony, there was a tin going around the audience asking for donations, this was for the Udon Thani Orphanage on the Khon Kaen Hwy. Lee from BKK donated 5000B and with your help and a couple of others the girls raised over 10,000B, so on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning Mon and Ann, (former employees at the bar and good friends) along with ladies from the Orphanage and expats cooked up a feast and delivered it to the 200 children for their lunch on Wednesday, and about 60 litres of ice-cream.

From ANZAC Day being a day of reflection and sombre moments to the smiles and happiness of the little ones at the Orphanage, it has been a great week thanks to the efforts of the girls, volunteers and expats. I just dont know how you guys managed to work in a kitchen in that heat, it would have been touching 50 plus deg with all the burners going, congratulations for your efforts and the bar and facilities are always there for your next project.

Well done Sport & crew. Thank you for providing a venue for all the Aussies & Kiwis in Udon to pay respect to those who lost their lives in all the military and peacekeeping operations in which our countries have been involved with. Raising money to help out those less fortunate in Udon is the icing on the cake.
Again well done

Excellent result there also to the various people involved.

Would be worth Tagging this Tin around next year, knowing what a success it was.

My pleasure to drop 500 in it again
