Wellsville is pretty proud of a little pocket park at the intersection of State Routes 417 and 19. Thousands of people drive by everyday, many glance over and see the gazebo and surrounding flowers dedicated to the memory of a legend in Wellsville history. Shane Colligan was an example of grace and courage who made an big impact on our community during his life.

Stealing from that memory can’t be tolerated.

Shane Colligan passed away in 2003

Maybe you know the bad actors behind this sad deed? While state-of-the-art surveillance videos are being analyzed, the Colligan family and a legion of Shane Colligan fans are hoping with help, they can find the complete jerks who did this.

A $200 reward for information leading to the identity of the flower thieves has been posted by friends of Shane Colligan.
