Avenue of HonourPrint Page Print this page

The Corryong Avenue of Honour was planted on the 29th August 1918 to commemorate the men who had served in the First World War.

The opening ceremony in connection with the avenue of honor was performed on Thursday, 29th. ult. Owing to the inclement weather not as many people turned out as would have otherwise but still a large number was present. The crowd assembled in front of the school, where a tree was planted by Mrs. A. L. Hamilton, sen., who also cut the ribbon which was tied to a tree guard on each side of the road. This done the crowd retired to the hall, where afternoon tea was served. Here several addresses were delivered by local residents, including Mr. Beardmore, M.L.A., and Lieut. Aspinall, who all spoke eulogistically of the interest and good work done by the residents in this direction.
