The Lismore RSL Sub-Branch will be out and about selling a selection of badges and pens in the lead-up to Anzac Day next Wednesday.

Volunteers will be in the industrial area today (Thursday, April 19) and in the CBD on Friday and various other locations around town from now until Tuesday, April 24.

This is the sub-branch's major fundraiser for the year and more volunteers are urgently needed - phone 6621 3851.

Secretary Wilson McClelland said one of the things the RSL provides is care packages to serving soldiers from the region and the members are always keen to hear from families who have someone on active duty.

Veterans wishing to participate in the dawn service and march should assemble at the "old post office" on the corner of Molesworth and Magellan streets at 0450hrs, ready to march off at 0500hrs to the War Memorial at the Memorial Baths. On completion of the dawn service, veterans and their families are invited to the traditional Anzac breakfast at the Lismore Workers Club.

The main march, service and wreath-laying will take place at the War Memorial from 0900. Veterans should form up in Molesworth St adjacent to the Browns Creek Car Park from 0830.
