Southland Anniversary Day
|The Chamber office is constantly asked;|
|Which day is Southland Anniversary day?|
How do I handle it as a holiday?
Chamber Southland is very clear on which day is Southland Anniversary day.
We have widely researched, held consultation, conducted a survey calling for submissions, and reached (after careful consideration) an obvious conclusion.

Mayors decide on Anniversary Day date
Tuesday, 6 December 2011
The three southern Mayors have decided Southland Anniversary Day will be celebrated on Easter Tuesday every year. Southland District Mayor Frana Cardno said it is great to be able to announce a decision on when to celebrate Anniversary Day.
"We would like as many as possible to join the councils celebrating this day but it is up to individual businesses to make their own decisions."
Gore District Mayor Tracy Hicks said this date was the obvious choice as so many organisations are using Easter Tuesday as Anniversary Day anyway.
Invercargill City Mayor Tim Shadbolt said it is important to have a united day of celebration.
"We should do something to mark the day."
