Smaller Dunbarton Unit Wanted...I presently have a large town home in Dunbarton and am looking for a smaller one level unit in Dunbarton. The condition of the unit is immaterial to me for I would want to choose my own finishes. If you know of anyone who would be willing to sell or is interested in a larger unit please call or email.
Thank you,

Mosquito deterrent recommended by Jack McCallus
Posted on Oct 1st, 2014
Dunbarton community resident, Jack McCallus has used "Cutter Backyard Bug Control" (www.cutterinsectrepellent.com) to repel mosquitoes from around his house and yard. He says that several Dunbarton residents were asking him about this at the annual meeting in September and this is the product that he has used successfully. Cutter Backyard Bug Control is available at Lowes and as with any repellent, read the label first to determine whether or not it is suitable for safe use around your home's exterior. There are a number of product reviews on the Internet if you Google the name of this product.
 
Copperhead snakes…something to watch for on Dunbarton roadways, especially at night
Posted on Sep 10th, 2014
Earlier this summer, there were two occasions whereby a copperhead snake bit a resident’s dog while they were walking at night on the main roadway. Perhaps the following information will make you aware of the habitat and habits of these slithering critters.
 
Copperhead snakes are venomous…meaning they bite and the “venom” is injected into you or your pet. These snakes prefer to live in wooded areas, among rocks, or near streams or ponds because prey is more plentiful in such locations. Favorite hiding places include stone walls, sawdust, garden mulch or compost piles, and under decaying stumps, in wood piles, under abandoned building debris, and under large flat stones. This snake will be seen basking during the day when weather is cool but not cold. During the heat of summer, it will stay hidden during the day and become active at night.
 
North Carolina holds the dubious title of the state with the most snakebite cases each year.
With such high numbers of Copperhead snakes in the places we live in, being the main reason for the great number of injuries.
 
Take a flashlight with you when you go out after dark. On cooler nights, a copperhead will rest on the roadway as the asphalt is warmer, having absorbed the heat of the day.

“A Brief History of Dunbarton”
Posted on Aug 14th, 2014
On July 19, 2014, 53 neighbors and friends gathered at Rick’s Diner for our quarterly “Neighborly Nosh and KNowledge” get-together AND to hear our grounds supervisor Tim Parrish speak about the history of Dunbarton. Knowing there would be a real interest in recording this information, Barbara Germino took notes and wrote the following paragraphs about Dunbarton’s history. Please read about Dunbarton's history here.
 
If you would like to add a memory, a story, or if you have a correction to what is recorded here, please let me know, and we will add it or make your correction on our website and on paper for those neighbors who don’t use the Internet. 

Thank you, Barbara, for making this article come together. Thank you, neighbors, for making Dunbarton such a great place to live!
