Have A Safe And Happy Holiday
The holiday season is always a special time of year. It is also a time when busy people may become more vulnerable to theft and other holiday crime.|
Be aware that criminals sometimes pose as couriers delivering gifts. Be careful about answering your door to strangers, and use a peephole or latch your screen or storm door if possible.
It is also not uncommon for criminals to take advantage of people’s generosity during the holiday season by soliciting donations door-to-door for bogus charitable causes. Ask for identification, and find out how the donated funds will be used. You might want to make your donation to a recognized charitable organization.

I send you my very best wishes for a wonderful holiday season and for the coming year.
