RS fan Michael: “Our Church trailers were broken into last night and one was actually stolen including all our neighborhood block party outreach equipment. All four trailers on our property were broken into, but unfortunately it was one of the Hey, Neighbor trailers that was taken.
It is most likely that the Hey, Neighbor decal has been stripped off the side of the black trailer, but the remnants or outline of it would probably still be visible. I have attached a picture of it for reference, but if you do see it anywhere, please call us or the non-emergency number for Rockford and make them aware of the whereabouts in the chance that we may actually get it back.
