Featuring red and purple poppies and the silhouette of a solider, the mural on the side of the RSL Sub-branch’s Memorial Hall was painted by artist Sara Dragotto, who also painted the Biboohra water tanks last year.

Mt Molloy RSL Sub-branch president Kerrie Pashen, congratulated Sara and members of the sub-branch for working together to complete this project of great importance.

“The mural creates an ‘Avenue of Remembrance’ for people visiting the Cenotaph behind the hall and visitors who stop to enjoy it on their way through town,” she said.

“The design includes the addition of the names of fallen soldiers from our area written within the red poppies, and the purple poppy is in remembrance of animals that lost their lives at war.”

Mayor Angela Toppin said the project was partly funded through MSC Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) Program, with generous additional contributions by the Mt Molloy RSL Sub-Branch.

“The mural will be enjoyed for generations to come by locals and visitors to our region, and I commend the Mt Molloy RSL Sub-Branch for this beautiful tribute to veterans.”
