New Riverton RSL mural pays respect to the past and creates sense of identity

THE Riverton RSL sub-branch’s renewal and refurbishment program has stepped up a gear with the unveiling of a new mural.

The mural, featuring an iconic slouch hat, red poppies and the Australian flag, has been painted on the wall of the club’s premises.

Sub-branch president Trevor Hogan said the mural was the first step in their plan to increase the RSL’s appeal and create a sense of pride.

“The new mural, commemorating our history and legacy, is the first part of a number of changes we are implementing to make the Riverton RSL a more inclusive and welcoming venue for members and visitors,” he said.

“The new changes should increase the camaraderie amongst our members, bring in new members and see the club continue to grow and prosper.”

Mr Hogan said he believed the mural, created by Perth artist Justin Keane, would become a well-known landmark and help identify the RSL premises.
