Well, as you know, a pound of cure!
Thanksgiving is less than a couple of weeks away and many of you will be closing in for the winter months. During the last season, there have been some regrettable incidents like burglaries and vandalism. A couple of cottage owners even had the content of their oil tanks stolen. We asked the SQ if there was some kind of organised group doing this. They searched but could not find any. So they must be isolated incidents.
To protect your cottage while you are away during the winter months, we strongly suggest that you have someone check your property regularly. It can be a neighbour who is a permanent resident or someone who will do it for a small fee. Contact Sheryl Caron, June Parker or myself if you need specific information.
By the way, many insurance companies do require that your property be regularly visited as part of the contract. If in doubt, check with them.
Finally, if you see a suspicious car, take down the license plate and alert one of the contacts on the Neighbourhood Watch List. Remember we are the eyes and ears of the police!
