OKNA Overlook Neighborhood Email 10/18/13

Safety Note: Several neighbors have reported unsatisfactory outcomes from door to door solicitors; specifically this week, teens soliciting for an online group that can not be found online. They are only going out after dark, so please be sensible and remember that you do not have to answer your door to anyone if you don’t wish. And if you have a visit that makes you feel hinky, call the police non-emergency number 503.823.3333 for unwanted persons. They will send a patrol car around if available.

Have a safe, great weekend!
