Memorial TreesPrint Page
Trees commemorate those from Mapleton And District who have served in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved. The trees include a Gallipoli Pine. Trees were originally planted in 1918 to commemorate those who lost their lives in World War One.
A tree planting ceremony at the Mapleton Hall grounds has been arranged for Friday the 27th inst. in connection with the School Arbour Day. The trees will be planted to perpetuate the memory of four fallen soldiers, namely: J. J. Logan, R. Logan, J.McKinnon and T. Waller. A working bee was arranged for Saturday the 14th inst., but heavy rain prevented the good resolutions from materialising, and many members who promised assistance did not allow their proffered services to be carried forward to the following Saturday.
