Doug Stephen has volunteered to do cottage checks on the East Road. The Freers and others will continue to do the West Road. If you do not want your property checked, please notify these individuals. Otherwise it is presumed you have given permission for entry. After Thanksgiving and before Victoria Day are particularly vulnerable times as thieves assume cottagers will not be around. You are reminded to maintain lists of valuables with make, serial and model numbers noted. In addition, engrave your driver’s license number (never your SIN number) on valuables. Be wary about cube vans, the preferred vehicle for thieves.
