GRAFFITI REMOVAL DAY 2021 
 
A MESSAGE FROM BARRY ANTEES
Deputy Project Manager/Volunteer Manager
Graffiti Removal Day
 
For clubs based in NSW we have written to all Councils and Shires advising them of Graffiti Removal Day on Sunday 28 March 2021. 
Each year we strive to create preventative measures against repeat graffiti, last year we had great success with murals, they have a 10–12-year life span.
 
This year we thought of combing Rotary's 100 years in Australia with the green preventative measure. We have informed the Councils and Shires of Rotary's celebration and have asked them to provide for free trees where Councils do their own propagation, for sites where we can remove the graffiti, plant trees in front of the walls or fences thus preventing it being reoffended. if Rotary Clubs can work with local school children and plant 100 trees at these sites as a way of celebrating 100 years, greening the planet and preventing graffiti reoccurring. Having the school children involved will have them take ownership of the project and learn about greening the planet and the fight against graffiti. The added bonus of the promotional value clubs will gain is enormous. 
 
Of course, in addition to this activity we will be working with our community volunteers and Rotary Clubs to perform our normal Graffiti Removal Day operations where we regularly remove over 30,000 sq metres of graffiti each year from residential and community assets with over 2,500 volunteers. 
 
If you can pass this through to your club members, I would be appreciative.
