From Susan Morehouse:
Officers Carl and Andy had nothing to report in the way of crime for our neighborhood. That is good news! They did say there have been a number of reports of cars being broken into. They recommend people hide or not leave belongings in their cars and to be sure to lock your car. Susan also reported that her rear window in her car was broken again by what appears to be some young boys in the neighborhood.
Mosa, the owner of the Buzzin Bee, reported problems with kids loitering in front of his store, in front of the laundramat and in the parking lot of His Branches. They are primarily girls who are fighting and are there from around 4-6 pm, M-F. The officers encouraged Mosa to not serve them in his store and to tell them to leave. If they do not leave then to call 911 and ask for an officer to come out and to give a careful description of who is the problem (clothing, etc)
Kate reported multiple thefts from the houses they have been rehabbing. They are not sure who it is and could be contractors, vagrant opportunistic people coming through the neighborhood, or even neighbors (although they have good neighbors). Addresses are 247 Wellington, 241-243 Wellington and 71 Wellington.
This Saturday, weather permitting, we will put the garden at Arnett and Wellington to bed for the winter (cut back perennials and pull up annuals, do any weeding,etc). Please come give a hand from 9-10 am. If it is raining hard (check your email if you want to know for sure) we will meet next Saturday, Nov. 5th instead. Because of the delayed dropping of the leaves, we will rake the park on Nov. 19th so please put that date on the calendar. Hope to see you on Saturday.
We closed our meeting in prayer for our community.
Next meeting will be November 22nd.
