Letter: Scarecrows stolen
On October 9, 2013 the Grade 3 students of Southpointe Academy in Tsawwassen went on a field trip to the Ladner Community Gardens. We visit the gardens frequently to learn about plants and sustainability.
During this trip, we made scarecrows to decorate the gardens. Unfortunately, the very next day, we heard that our scarecrows were stolen!
We were depressed, mad, ferocious, angry, upset, heart-broken, disappointed, devastated and outraged! We decided to write this letter to the local newspaper so that our community would know what happened.
We wanted the word spread about this villainous act. We worked really hard on these scarecrows and are very disappointed that they were stolen from such a special place as the Ladner Community Gardens. The gardens serve our community by providing garden space and food to the food banks.
By writing this letter, we hope that our scarecrows may be found or that whoever took them will bring them back. We do not want to be sad anymore.
The Grade 3 students of Southpointe Academy, Tsawwassen
(Update: as of earlier this week, two of the three scarecrows have been returned.)
