Krafty Kronys ‘disgusted’ with bus vandals

Web Lead

To the Editor:

It has been over six years since three friends of mine and I started the Krafty Kronys. This came about when the Interior Health Authority cut the funding to the Therapeutic Activation Program for Seniors and TAPS had to move out of the hospital, relocate and depend on donations to keep the program going.

Of all the TAPS programs in the Kootenays, Creston TAPS is the only one still operational. This just proves again that Creston is a wonderful, caring community.

It is too bad we have undesirables living among us.

During these past years our group has grown significantly, and we have all worked very hard to help keep the TAPS program running. Our largest fundraisers were to purchase two new buses for TAPS.

When I found out that vandals took one of our buses and took it for a joyride, causing between $8,000 and $10,000 worth of damage, I was totally disgusted.

I hope you enjoyed your trip. My motto is, “What goes around, comes around,” and I hope I am around when you are caught, arrested, charged and incarcerated.

It may take a while but we will find you. Rewards do amazing things.
