Donations needed to replace vandalized VFW sign

BENNETT, Colo. -- Members of VFW Post #8449 in Bennett are asking for donations after their 50-year-old neon sign was vandalized over the weekend.

"Someone vandalized our sign and broke it and busted it up with rocks and bricks and stuff," explained John Kuiee, a trustee at the VFW.

Bennett-Watkins fire crews removed broken glass and sign pieces from the area.

The VFW said has been assisted by the fire department and the Adams County Sheriff's Office.

"Ya know, we’re here to help our fellow veterans and somebody like this comes around and busts up things and costs us more money to keep things going," Kuiee said.

The VFW has started raising funds to replace the sign. Donations are being accepted at: Tri-Valley VFW Post 8449, P.O. Box 327, Bennett, CO 80102. Include an email address and a receipt will be sent.
