One little traffic island in Prairie Village is a little less happy, all of a sudden.
A reader sent us a note yesterday asking what had happened to the Prairie Village Happy Tree at the intersection of Oxford and 69th Street. We went by Tuesday morning, and sure enough, the locally famous Happy Tree sign and tags were gone.
Katie Trenkle, who lives across the street from the island, tells us her family saw the sign intact Saturday evening around 7 p.m. On Sunday morning, it was gone, she said.
“We would love to know what happened to it and if someone would return the sign,” Trenkle said. “It was still bringing so much joy to our community.”
Anyone have any idea what happened to the Happy Tree sign?
