VFW post offering reward

December 1, 2004

A Grinch didn't steal Christmas from VFW Park, but the timing's off on the park's holiday decorations.

Elmer Tanking of the Tonganoxie VFW Post said timers for Christmas lights were taken last week from a shelter house at the park. Tanking is offering $25 for anyone who returns the stolen timers, taken between 5 p.m. Friday and 5 p.m. Saturday.

VFW members previously decorated the parking area, but didn't this season because last year someone took bulbs from the string of lights.

"If you pick one, the whole dang string goes out," Tanking said. "It was a mess."

Anyone with information on the stolen timers is asked to contact Tanking at (913) 369-2173 or (816) 223-8540.
