BROCKVILLE ā€“ For a second time this year, vandals have damaged the piano in the Hardy Park bandshell.

Police were called around 9 a.m. Thursday morning after receiving a complaint.

It’s the second time the piano has been damaged, rendering it beyond repair, after the instrument was broken July 26.

The predominately blue upright with Canada 150 art was put in the gazebo by a group of volunteers and was part of an effort by Thousand Islands Second School art students.

Anyone with information on the vandalism is asked to call Const. Eric Ruigrok at 613-342-0127 extension 6086 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
