Legacy Remembrance Day Centenary Concert
100 years ago, in 1923 Legacy was founded and made a promise to help the families of veterans to carry on their lives after the loss or injury of their loved ones. It was a simple promise that Legacy keeps today, providing the same stability, guidance, and assistance that a partner would normally provide to their family.
Since the Legacy promise was made by a soldier to his dying mate in the trenches of WW1 “To look after the missus and the kids” Legacy has supported Australian Defense Force families in times of great need.
Today Sunshine Coast Legacy supports over 700 widows and children of veterans who gave their lives or health serving our country.
For 21 years Legacy in conjunction with the Sunshine Coast Concert Band has conducted a yearly Commemorative Concert on the Saturday closest to Remembrance Day 11th November for our Legacy widows, family and friends.
This year being 100 years will commemorate the Promise
“Fear not that you have died for naught:
The Torch you threw to us we caught!
and now our hands will hold it high,
It's glorious light shall never die.
We will not break faith with you who lie
on many a field”.
