When the Bristol Historical Society went to set up its annual Christmas tree sale today, it discovered that someone chopped the tops off all of its 100-odd trees, effectively destroying their value.
Bob Montgomery, the city historian, said he is hopping mad -- as he should be.
Anyone who can help identify the culprits should contact the police.
Let's see if the community can rally to show this Grinch-like behavior won't stop Christmas from coming, at least for the historical society. If you can lend a hand to this important organization, do.
Update on Saturday morning: Neighbor Bob Boudreau says there are many trees there that still have their tops. So don't hesitate to go check 'em out.
