Commemoration of the Fall of Saigon
28 Apr 2019

Events to Commemorate Black April

Dear compatriots,

Since South Vietnam was lost to the Communists, our country has undergone countless mourning and tragedies. Communist Vietnam has continued to ostracize our people while offering our land, our sea to the northern invaders for the last 44 years.

To protest against the tyranny of Communist Vietnam, the Vietnamese Community in South Australia will have the following events organised by the Vietnamese Veterans Association / SA:

1. Memorial Ceremony for the Fallen

  • Time: 11:00 am Sunday, 28/4/2019
  • Venue: Vietnam War Memorial
    Torrens Parade Ground
    Victoria Drive, Adelaide SA 5000There will be laying wreaths ceremony.

2. Commemoration of the Fall of Saigon

  • Time: 6:30 pm Sunday, 28/4/2019
  • Venue: VCA/SA Community Centre
    62 Athol St, Athol Park SA 5012

You are cordially invited to attend these two events. Refreshments are available after both events.

PUBLIC MEETING

The Management Committee (MC) of the Vietnamese Community in Australia / SA warmly invites you to our quarterly Public Meeting to be held at:

  • Time:        3pm to 5pm Sunday, 7/7/2019
  • Location:  Vietnamese Community Centre
                      62 Athol St, Athol Park

Besides a shorter reporting session, the remaining time will be devoted to discussing the following question:

Should we continue to organise Tet Festival as a community festival?

We invite you to voice your opinion in order to prepare for Tet Festival 2020. If we want to continue organising Tet Festival as a community event, how are we going to do it? What are the best ways to organise this type of event? The MC needs your inputs, opinions as well as your participation. As this is a festival for the whole community, it is up to our community to decide whether it still needs to be treated as a community festival.

All queries can be sent to the MC via postal mail at the above address or email to ykiendonghuong@sa.vnca.org.au

Very respectful.

Vietnamese-Australian Museum Petition

Australia is the home of almost 300,000 people with Vietnamese heritage, representing 1.25% of the population.

Over the last 40 years, the Vietnamese community has become a model for multi-culturalism in Australia having successfully integrated into society, contributing to business, government, sports and the arts.

Unlike the Chinese, Italian, Islamic and Jewish communities, which all have their respective museums in Melbourne, there is no venue where current and future generations of Vietnamese-Australians can learn about Vietnamese history in Australia.

It is time the Vietnamese-Australian community have their own museum to collect, preserve and exhibit Vietnamese culture, history and identity as a reminder and example of Australia’s world class multicultural society.

The museum will support community development and engage with the wider community. It will host programs and initiatives that will transform the museum into an iconic civic hub, resource centre and a must-see destination in Victoria.

Add your name to the petition if you agree that the Government needs to support the establishment of a Vietnamese-Australian museum.

This petition is conducted in partnership with the Victorian chapter of the Vietnamese Community in Australia (VCA).
