Vandals urged to confess

Dear Editor,

This is in response and addressed to the thoughtless vandals who ruined the skating pond. What in the world were you thinking? Your act of selfishness and ignorance has caused people a lot of heartache.

Hard work from the Lions and newfound fun and enjoyment by families has been banished because of your thoughtless act.

I have very fond memories of the old millpond rink. Mr. Cahill was the attendant in the little ice shanty with the big roaring fire in the old pot belly stove, with watered down hot cocoa to warm us up from hours of skating! Along with the smell of woolen mittens and gloves drying on that big old stove. Our parents rarely had to check on us—they knew where we were.

We spent countless hours skating with family and friends and now your lack of common sense has ruined what new families and friends could have experienced and to have made memories of.

They may never find who or whom has done this, but you will have to live with the guilt of what you have done, forever.

Thank you for wrecking one of the fun things we could do alone, with a group of friends or with family.

Do the right thing and confess your sin, and help clean up your mess you made for a wonderful opportunity to have some winter fun.

Diana Hoffman,
former Rockford resident
