Letters to the Editor

Letters: Thievery runs amok

A thief is a thief is a thief whether he/she/they steal from homes, businesses or even dirt from the cemetery.

In 1989 the Sooke Lions club spent almost every weekend for a year to revitalize the Sooke Harbour Cemetery. It was hard work, but work for the benefit of our community, that’s what we do. We continue to maintain that cemetery and part of that job requires dirt to be brought in for our use.

To the persons unknown (thieves) who continue to take our dirt, please be advised that you have managed to get some 35 Lions members a bit upset at you. There is nothing like going to a work party and find that some miscreant has stolen your supplies. Shame.

To mitigate this continuing problem, we are forced to build a secure storage place for the dirt, this will take money away from other projects we do in the community.

In closing, we want to thank the citizens of Sooke and area who have so strongly supported our club for the past 49 years. We will continue to do our community service knowing that there are a lot more of you good folks out there than the few bad who caused this letter to be written. Thanks for your continued support.
