Vandals strike VFW park during weekend

July 19, 2006

Tonganoxie Veterans of Foreign Wars members hope someone will come forward with information about a weekend vandalism at VFW Park.

Someone broke one of the cement picnic tables in the park's shelterhouse. And VFW commander Elmer Tanking estimates the table was valued at $400 to $500.

"They had to take a sledge hammer to it, I think. We've got it back in shape now," Tanking said Tuesday morning.

Vandals apparently struck between Friday and Sunday morning, he said.

Tanking urged anyone with information about who damaged the table to call him, (913) 369-2173, or Tonganoxie police, (913) 369-3754.
