Foundation’s vandalized billboard back up in Watertown, Wis.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation billboard that was vandalized Aug. 26 in Watertown, Wis., has been replaced and is back up for passersby to read its simply-stated and thought-provoking message: “Enjoy Life Now: There is no Afterlife.”

The billboard has been placed (for the second time) at the entrance to Watertown, at N8690 High Rd., by Adams Outdoor Co., which replaced the vandalized vinyl sign at no charge.

An octogenarian Lifetime Foundation member who prefers not to be publicly named suggested the wording of the slogan as a legacy for his grandchildren.

The donor of the billboard is putting up $500 and the Foundation is matching that pledge for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the vandal(s). The donor expressed shock and revulsion that a vandal or vandals would deface his message to “enjoy life now.”

In order to claim a reward, information leading to the conviction of the vandal or vandals should be directed to the Foundation, which will pass on information to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department. Contact the Foundation by phone (608/256-8900) or e-mail.

For more information, see the news release announcing the placing of the billboard, and the news release about the vandalism.
