Other Tasmanian Avenues - Bream
A Soldiers' Avenue
Activity at Bream Creek
Some months ago it was decided to plant trees at Bream Creek
in honour of the soldiers who have gone to the front and on Friday,
July 12, this plan was carried out with great success. The trees
were planted in the grounds of the Bream Creek-hall, and consist
of pines of various kinds, and English tree, put in alternately.
There are 24 trees, one for each family, whose sons are doing
their bit, and representing 36 men in all. Great interest was
shown in the planting.
When all the work was done, afternoon tea was served in the hall.
Afterwards a short meeting was held, and a committee of nine appointed
to manage all welcomes and farewells to soldiers of the district.

Bream Creek Notes
An Avenue of Honour
Recently Bream Creek Show Ground was a hive of activity.
A happy crowd of relatives and friends of the Bream Creek soldiers
were there planting trees. The land in the vicinity is very poor,
so loads of soil had to be carted in which to plant the trees.
After the work was finished, workers and visitors were invited
to afternoon tea in the hall.

Note that the two descriptions differ
in their descriptions of the exact location of the trees. This may
due to error or changes in the standard descriptions of the area:
the two sites as they exist now are not adjacent though not distant
from each other.
