President’s Memo for May 2013
by Harris Rogers
Once again: “LOOK OUT” 
The events in Boston were unfolding as I was preparing this column. While we live in one of the Bay Area’s safestcommunities, it bears repeating again – we need to take an active role in watching out for each other and in doing out partto keep the Shores a safe place to live. We can not say this often enough:
Let’s not make it so easy for those who would take advantage in our community. Lock your cars, even inyour driveways. Lock your home (front and back doors), even if you only step out for a few minutes. And don’t encouragea break-in by leaving valuables like cell phones, laptops, iPads, and GPS units in plain sight, either in your car or at home.
for your neighbors! If something doesn’t look right, call
If you SEE something, SAY something!
Please don’t hesitate to call and let the police check out anything thatlooks suspicious or out of the ordinary.Do your part and help us keep the Shores a safe place to live and work.
