Disappointment over flag damage

St. Marys Journal Argus

Dear Editor:

If tossing the bench over the bridge and onto the road was not enough, there is no end to the senseless damage being done in this fine town. What has happened to the respect for your community, for your town, for your country….for the service clubs that work for you when you are in need?

The St. Marys Lions Club erects Canadian flags above participating merchant storefronts in the Town of St. Marys. Over the past weekend, three of these flags were stolen!

Not only were the flags stolen, the brackets were broken or torn right off the wall!

This is a lot of work by one Lion, Larry Ford, who has put up these brackets. This means bringing in his truck, a step ladder, drills, etc. to repair and replace.

These flags are put up by Lions Club members for each and every special occasion in our town (ie: Baseball Hall of Fame Induction, Heritage Festival, and long weekends) during the summer and fall, and taken down again after the event.

Many have told us how much these flags add to our town façade.

The money raised from this venture goes back into your community in some shape or form.

Words cannot express on paper the displeasure and disappointment felt after discovering this damage!
