Volunteers from Seattle Country Day School will be repairing the tagged mural under the Aurora Bridge this Saturday, May 15, according to Head of School Michael G. Murphy. The mural, which has been tagged and repaired countless times, was repainted just last fall. Unfortunately the site seems to be a frequent target for vandals.
“Let’s hope it remains in good shape and not hit again by graffiti!” Murphy wrote. Murphy also emphasized Seattle Country Day School’s commitment to contributing to the Queen Anne community. He wrote:
Besides the mural and Adopt-a-Street clean-up, SCDS has hopefully been a positive influence in the neighborhood in other ways. Several of our students have made multiple visits to the nearby Queen Anne Care Center bringing Valentine’s Day gifts, sharing music, and interviewing some residents as part of their history classes. Also, for several years, our students have regularly been sprucing –up designated areas in Rogers and Mayfair Park under the guidance of the city’s Parks Department.
Vandalism around the neighborhood is nothing new. Read up on the most recent occurrences here.
