Stolen Sign

We’ve been hanging a banner advertising the synagogue off of 78 from a couple of steel posts sunk into the ground, putting it up either Thursday or Friday and taking it down Saturday night. Since we’re only putting it up for a couple of days at a time, it counts as temporary advertising and we don’t have to get a permit for it.

So I go out Saturday night after service to retrieve the sign. The banner was gone.

The bungee cords securing it to the posts were gone.

The posts were gone.

That’s right, folks. Somebody hated our banner so much that they not only stole it, but also stole the metal posts that it was attached to just to make it that much more difficult and expensive for us to replace it. Hopefully I’ll be able to at least find the posts tossed into the bushes on the side of the road in the daylight.

*chuckle* It’s almost funny that our first act of vandalism (and we’ve been expecting this sort of thing) was so petty.

  1. Truly disgusting. It’s a sad statement about our society that someone felt that was the best thing that could be done with his/her time. I sincerely hope this does not happen again.
