Home invasion...keep your doors and patio doors locked!
Posted on Jul 11th, 2016
MAKE SURE YOU LOCK HOUSE DOORS.....Here's what happened July 11.... We had a home invasion on Glenmore. The resident was at home at lunch time and heard his alarm chirp. He thought it was his wife and called to her. When he got no response, he checked and saw a white woman in the house. She ran outside where a blue Taurus was waiting. She and a white male drove off into one of the Glenmore cul-de-sacs and had to turn around when they couldn't get to the main exit. The homeowner was able to get a picture of the car and the license plate as they drove back by to exit Dunbarton. Police were called. They checked the license plate and believe that they know who the male is.

The couple was also seen by roofers working across from 26. They reported that they had noticed the woman going from house to house, checking under mats (probably looking for keys) and trying door knobs, perhaps to see if any doors were unlocked. Luckily no one was hurt and nothing was taken. Police say the suspect has drug issues.

Please spread the word, particularly to any in your neighborhood who might not have email, that they should be sure to keep all doors locked, even when home. Be on the lookout for a blue Ford Taurus.

Thanks,  Helen Thompson

How to Enjoy the Dunbarton Book Exchange
Posted on Mar 27th, 2016
You may have noticed the bookcases in the clubhouse, filled with books on many different topics, themes, issues—and mostly fiction. The Dunbarton Book Exchange was created so residents could exchange reading material, conveniently and economically, creating a community benefit for all. It was originally set up with the premise that you “donate a book, take a book.” And it has been very successful. So successful in fact, that now we need to manage the donations to keep the Book Exchange working effectively while continuing to provide recent and interesting books for you to read. In order for the Book Exchange to work effectively, we request that you consider the following:
