Vandalism Mars the Weekend at Chapel Square

Turf Blankets Come Off; Thoughtless Action Ruins ABCG Efforts

February 23 --  In a sure sign of spring, Saturday morning saw six workers for our field partners from Annandale Boys and Girls Club (ABGC) remove the turf blankets at Chapel Square field where they’d been warming and protecting a complete and costly overseeding of the field since late November.  With the milder than normal winter, Chapel Square was a sight to behold, with lush, deep green grass awaiting the return of the Canadian geese, the AHS lacrosse team, and the start of the soccer season in March.

Sadly, even before the geese arrived on Sunday morning and the AHS lacross team on Tuesday, a thoughtless person couldn’t resist some unnatural urge to drive a car out onto the field and tear it up, leaving tire marks and gashes that will remain throughout the season as a reminder of his disrespectful act.  Why anyone would take pleasure in driving a vehicle onto a soccer field, heedless of the time and effort it takes to maintain a field and ruining if for others, is a mystery.
