Adding Hope to the Journey Mural
The Story Behind This Mural
With the artist’s commission sponsored by the Rotary Club of Maryborough, and located on the wall above the King Kong Sales facade, this mural celebrates 85 years of Rotary in Maryborough and 110 years internationally. Rotary is an international organisation whose purpose is to provide humanitarian services, encourage high ethical standards, and to advance goodwill and peace around the world. On the right is Paul Harris, a lawyer from Chicago, USA who established Rotary in 1905. On the left is Mr. Stewart Corser, the first president and the founding father of Rotary in the Maryborough-Fraser Coast region. The visual depicts the legacy of these men through their work with Rotary to improve our world – the Rotary emblem, depicted as the sun, shines its light on all people in need. The inclusion of a cat and dog in the mural acknowledges the work done by local Rotarians to assist in animal welfare.
