AUTOMOBILE BREAK-INS in DUNBARTON...lock your car in the driveway!!
There have been multiple automobile break-ins ("larceny from a motor vehicle") on Inglenook in the last few weeks, the latest being yesterday, November 9.  In every case, the cars were unlocked. In the latest case, only change was stolen. While the police were here investigating yesterday afternoon, a car was stolen in Breckenridge. It is clear that there is criminal activity in the area and that the perpetrators are becoming more brazen.

I cannot encourage you enough to keep your cars locked and your valuables out of sight. The police tell me that if we get a "reputation" for not locking our cars, we will only have more incidents, which could escalate into more serious crimes.

The police are surprised by the rash of crimes in Dunbarton. I hope that they have stepped up patrols. We can HELP the police by reporting ANY suspicious activity. Given the activity lately, it would perhaps be better to call 911 rather than the non-emergency number.

Thanks, Helen Thompson

Dunbarton Friends and Neighbors Enjoyed Listening to the Dulcimer
Posted on Nov 3rd, 2016
Twenty Dunbarton friends and neighbors enjoyed time together at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church on Saturday morning October 15th. The main attraction and program was neighbor Mark Higgins playing his dulcimer (see picture) which is a lovely string instrument with a long history. The dulcimer is a difficult instrument to learn and to play, requiring much practice, memorization, and skill in musical theory. His program was the perfect mix of his playing lovely, mostly familiar songs, and explaining the instrument's origins and why he became interested in learning to play a few years ago! We are grateful to Mark for graciously providing his time, expertise, and lovely music, in such an interesting and fun way. (Reported by Karen Witzleben)
 

REMEMBER THIS?
Many years ago, during the late fall and before Halloween...Dunbarton residents carved pumpkins and set them at the top of the hill for a cheery welcome home. Ginny Darnell was our inspiration for this fun-filled event and the Dunbarton crew assisted with the bales of hay and the lighting.
