The Fellowship Hall at Perry Hall Presbyterian Church located at 8848 Belair Road was broken into and extensively vandalized in the late hours of December 29, 2013. Damage included broken windows, an air conditioner torn from a window, as well as, blood spattered walls and carpeting (the vandals cut themselves on the broken glass). The break-in was discovered at about 10:30 PM and two suspects were quickly apprehended due to the rapid response of police from the Parkville Precinct and a K9 unit.
This building serves as a community resource and meeting place for organizations including Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, MS Support, Youth For Christ and a Masonic Lodge. Many families have celebrations here as well and the damage to this building has affected the greater Perry Hall Community.
Although clean-up has begun, the cost of repairs and renovations is expected to exceed the insurance resources. Donations for this project supporting the Church’s efforts may be sent to the church at the following address: Perry Hall Presbyterian Church, 8848 Belair Road, Nottingham, MD 21236.
