In fresh violets were sold to raise money to support returned soldiers, or the Cheer-Up fund. The Governor, Sir Henry Galway, addressed attendees, stressing remembrance and honouring of Australian troops and their sacrifice to Empire. He also told the crowd:. Today we not only honour the day, but our hearts go out with the deepest respect and sympathy to they who are mourning the loss of their nearest and dearest. The British Empire will never be able to repay the debt owed to the women for their calm self sacrifice in this great struggle.
Janice Pavils describes the 'spontaneous demonstration of Violet Day as a form of grief management' with the 'memorial as a substitute communal headstone The date of Violet Day changed frequently, the first few years ranging from mid June through to early August.

In and volumes of poetry were also sold to raise money. Funds went towards the work of the Cheer-Up Hut. In the early to mid s a service took place at the Exhibition Building on North Terrace. In the service was shifted to the Adelaide Town Hall, where it remained for as long as the Violet Memory Day services continued. Proceedings generally included an organ recital, hymns, a school choral performance and religious readings. The focus shifted again to remembering the fallen.
The Town Hall was decorated with violets and other floral tributes. The annual service took on further significance with the outbreak of the Second World War, though the format continued in much the same way. Following the Second World War the commemorations were extended to incorporate the fallen soldiers of both conflicts. The fiftieth anniversary of Violet Day saw hundreds of people gather in Adelaide.
There was also at least one Violet Day held in New Zealand, in Broken Hill did hold an annual Violet Day for a number of years, the last large community event taking place in Enthusiasm for continuing to hold Violet Day commemorations gradually waned. The same section of the RSL's annual report which notes the event at the Adelaide Town Hall also records the success of the Field of Remembrance commemorations and fundraising, involving the sale of poppies around Rememberence Day in November, perhaps an indication of where interest had shifted.
This instead focussed on the service address by the Rev. Keith Seaman and the Rev. The following year the Violet Memory Day Committee met in May to vote unanimously to discontinue the Town Hall service, though they expressed some sadness at doing so. Thus Violet Day appears to have faded quietly from the collective consciousness. In , with commemorations of the First World War in full swing a variety of community groups once again marked Violet Day, or drew on its history for public events and exhibitions.

That's really wonderful to hear Nicole, and the first time I've heard about a tin violet arch, I'd love to see it. The church still has a tin Violet Arch in which the violets are placed.
