ANZAC Day 2011 at Kramer’s Bar & Grill

Posted on 03 May 2011 by Sammy

Down Under Up North (YACA)

On the 24th April, 2011 I went to Kramer’s Bar & Grill to celebrate ANZAC Day with fellow Aussies which was organized by YACA (Australians in Canada Association). I also celebrated with YACA in 2009 for my birthday, when I had just moved to Toronto. It’s so good to connect with fellow Aussies and feel at home again!

The Significance of ANZAC Day

ANZAC Day is a very meaningful day for both Australians and New Zealanders. It is a national day of remembrance to honour the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought in Gallipoli in Turkey during World War I. At the end of 1915, the Allied Gallipoli casualties included 21,255 from the UK, an estimated 10,000 dead soldiers from France, 8,709 from Australia, 2,721 from New Zealand, and 1,358 from British India.

ANZAC Day is commemorated by both countries on the 25th of April every year by both Australia and New Zealand and is a national public holiday. It is the most solemn day of the year and marches by veterans, including the Australian Defence Force and Reserves, the Australian Defence Force Cadets and the Australian Air League, are held in cities and towns nationwide. The Anzac Day Parade from each state capital is televised live with commentary. ANZAC Day is also observed in the Cook Islands, Niue, and Tonga.

Kramer’s Bar & Grill

Kramer’s used to be a run-down bar, but has recently been purchased by some Aussies and has been cleaned up quite nicely. The patio out the back was nice to relax and enjoy the company. We enjoyed an Aussie burger, Fish & Chips, Meat Pies, ANZAC Biscuits over some Aussie Trivia (which proved extremely difficult). Kramer’s also offered VB (Victorian Bitter!), Pavlova and Aussie footy was playing on the telly!

Paola, Louise and Grace accompanied me to this event. Thanks so much girls!
