Bluff Park Lions Club Hut
The Bluff Park Lions Club was vandalized on July 2.
After unknown vandals decided to cover the Bluff Park Lions Club Hut in graffiti, the Bluff Park Boy Scout Troop 21 is volunteering to clean up the damages.
Bluff Park resident Corbin Camp saw pictures of the July 2 vandalism on Facebook and decided to help the Boy Scouts repair the hut. He set up a GoFundMe page to help cover the cost of repairs and potentially provide a reward for information that leads to the vandals’ arrest. So far, it has raised $180.
“Why someone thought vandalizing it was a good idea is beyond me. We as a community are tired of this kind of thing,” Camp said.
An Eagle Scout painted and cleaned up the hut in 2014, and the troop has since used it for various activities such as selling concessions at the Bluff Park Art Show. Camp said the costs of repainting the building are fairly inexpensive, but he wants to support the Boy Scouts who are giving their time to clean up the graffiti.
“The fundraiser is just a way to support our scout troop after one of them already put a lot of work into his project,” Camp said. 'While the costs are relatively low, the fact someone has to volunteer their time to fix something some stupid person thought was funny shouldn't be discounted.”
