We love Hamil­ton, and want to keep it clean

On a re­cent Sun­day we held our an­nual pic­nic at the Bat­tle­field Park pavil­ion as we have for many years. We are a veter­ans’ as­so­ci­a­tion and love the lo­ca­tion and soli­tude.

We were ap­palled by the in­sult­ing, dis­gust­ing, hor­ri­ble, of­fen­sive and racist com­ments writ­ten on the walls and pic­nic ta­bles. I vented my frus­tra­tion to the staff at Bat­tle­field and was in­formed that this hap­pens all the time and they try to clean the mess be­fore a pic­nic.

Racism is ig­no­rance and is bad. To the in­di­vid­u­als who are do­ing this, its nei­ther funny or smart. You will be caught be­cause there will be more po­lice sur­veil­lance. Do some­thing con­struc­tive rather than de­struc­tive. We hap­pen to love Hamil­ton and want to keep it clean. Marie DiVit­to­rio, Hamil­ton
