A community monument in Kalispell’s Woodland Park was vandalized with swastikas over the Thanksgiving holiday.

The Spirit Community Monument embodies the community spirit of the Flathead Valley.

This is the second time in two months that the spirit monument has been vandalized.

Love Lives Here, a Flathead Valley Group part of the Montana Human Rights Network was scheduled to address the matter speak at Monday night’s Kalispell City Council meeting.

The group planned to talk with Kalispell Mayor Mark Johnson and City Council members about ways to combat hate speech in the Flathead Valley.
