So much positive neighbor-helping-neighbor stuff goes on through Front Porch Forum. This posting today on the FPF ONE West Neighborhood Forum was hard to read…
We discovered yesterday that our storage space at the old April Cornell building on the corner of North Ave and Berry St. was ransacked and things were stolen. Included in the missing items are a very large storage container of K’nex (my son’s birthday present), other kids games – also being stored for future presents, my kids 3-4 year old spring/summer clothing, my snowboard helmet, 2 sleeping bags and a tent. In addition to the theft, dozens of vinyl records and CD’s were broken, as well as some glass jars and ceramic figures. If you have any information regarding this, please contact the BPD. And if you have any 4 year old boys clothing to donate to us, that would be appreciated.
I hope the neighbors rally around this family.
