St. George’s, The Anglican Parish for The Blue Mountains, had just launched a campaign to promote their 3 special services on Christmas Eve when one of the sandwich board signs promoting the events was taken. “The bank had given us permission to place the sign on their
property and the “Single Event” provisions of the Town’s Sign By-law allowed the sign” reported John Hethrington, a member of St. George’s Parish Council. “So, we are dumbfounded as to why the sign was taken”.
John White, also on Parish Council, filed a report with the OPP and arranged a replacement sign. The sign promoted a 5 o’clock Pajama Mass at St. George’s for families to bring their children to celebrate the birth of Jesus. It also promoted a sing-along coral Eucharist at 7 pm and a Candlelight Communion Service at 9 pm.
“We can’t imagine who would have taken the sign” continued Hethrington. "Riverside Press quickly produced a replacement sign for the TD Bank location, but we would like the stolen sign returned to the Church, no questions asked. After all, it’s the season for forgiveness.”
