Lend a helping hand

Editor: I find it disgusting that this individual would sneak around in the dark of night with a bolt cutter to damage community property.


Grassy Plains Community Hall is currently in the process of constructing an outdoor stage. While construction is being done, it was decided to lock the main gate to prohibit public access and post a sign stating this was done due to safely and liability issues.

On or about the 25 of October, the lock was cut and a note left that read “Like we would wreck the community hall here.” Interesting. You have done just that by destroying their lock.

I find it disgusting that this individual(s) would sneak around in the dark of night with a bolt cutter to damage community property. Why don’t you approach the hall membership in bright daylight and express your concerns?

Or better yet come on out with a rake and paint brush and lend a hand with maintenance.

The lock will be replaced from fund raising monies. Be sure to wave at these dedicated people as you drive by one of their fund raising events such as road side cleanup or the spring hall work bee and yes they will wave back.

They are friendly and approachable.
