Organizers Ellen Lewers (president of the Sooke Fall Fair) and Karl Linell (president of the Sooke Community Association) are formally putting out a call for community help to clean off the spray-painted vandal tags from the Sooke Community Hall.
They are seeking volunteers to help with a group clean-up. Sometime on Sunday night (July 2), vandals spray-painted tags on three different exterior walls of the Sooke Community Hall. Besides contributing to the well-being and moral spirit of the town, you are quite likely to meet some incredible people.
Added, from Ellen Lewers: “Just a little clarification re the clean up tonight. We are going to power wash the building after the clean up and as well power wash the stairs and bannister and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. Karl will bring a couple of gallons of white paint and we will bring our paint brushes and paint the trim at the hall and give the old girl a much needed lift. We could use some gardening skills and a hoe, to weed by the front stairs on Sheilds. This is our community and I know Sooke has some of the best folks and we, together, can make this good again.”
Two times have been set.
Thursday evening, 7:00 p.m. The graffiti will be washed off.
