Noalimba AvenuePrint Page
Noalimba Avenue honours the the original soldier settlers who served in World War One and subsequent conflicts. Trees were planted in 2006 to replace the original Avenue of Honour.
The original Avenue of Honour of poplar trees was planted on the 17th September 1924 to commemorate the soldier settlers who served in World War One. The poplar trees became dangerous and were replaced in 2006 with pin oaks. The memorial plaque was installed on the avenue in 2008.
The planting of the Soldiers Memorial Avenue took place last Wednesday, perfect weather favoring the fixture. Rev Canon Riley, in his address, said the Parents & Citizens Assn. of Kentucky had done him a great honour in asking him to take part in the planting of such a grand avenue as Noalimba would be in the course of a few years. He complimented the committee on the choice of the name Noalimba, meaning Belonging to Us, which he thought was very appropriate.
