Someone tried to take away a piece of us. After more than 20 years without incident and less than 6 months after completing a major restoration project on our iconic statue, Charity was vandalized this week and torn from his pedestal in the early morning hours. The good news is that the police caught the vandal. The bad news is that we face another period of time with an empty front porch. We will be working with the original restoration company to evaluate the extent of the damage and bring him back home again.
