Pride of Walhalla Booster Club Seeks Community’s Help Repairing Damaged Trailer

Back in December we told you about the theft of the Walhalla High School band’s trailer. Fortunately, the trailer, along with all the instruments and equipment totaling more than $40,000, was recovered.

Oconee County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested 33 year-old Jason Bradley Pierce of Seneca and charged him with two counts of Grand Larceny, while Seneca Police charged him with one count each of both Grand and Petit Larceny. He is out of jail on bond, and the Walhalla High Band is left with a damaged trailer.

The Pride of Walhalla Booster Club says both fenders were ripped off the trailer, black spray paint was used to cover the logos on the sides, and the locking mechanism was cut off. The estimated cost for the repairs will exceed the Booster Club’s annual budget, so they are asking the community for help with the repairs and associated costs.

If you want to contribute, you can visit any branch of the Community First Bank and drop off a donation for the Pride of Walhalla Trailer Fund. Make checks payable to The Pride of Walhalla with “The Pride of Walhalla Trailer Fund” on the memo line.

The booster club is also looking for a body shop willing to help with repair work.
