The WCLS, with permission from the Association, posted a wonderful “Totem Tale” along the Lake Louise trail. They were pages of an illustrated storybook posted every few yards for children to read as they walked along the trail. This was a temporary display until the end of June. Yesterday, the signs were found vandalized. Some removed, some destroyed. The Association is an avid supporter of the Library in our community, and is offering a $500 reward for any information leading to the identification and arrest of the vandal. Please contact Norm Smith at email@example.com with any information you might have.
