No Porch Party July 6th; Next Will Be Held August 3
Due to many neighbors' Fourth of July travel plans, we have decided not to have a porch party this evening. The next porch party will be held on August 3, and we hope to see you all there! More details to come closer to the time.
National Night Out: Tuesday, August 7
Please save the date for National Night Out: Tuesday, August 7. We look forward to enjoying refreshments and entertainment with our neighbors at beautiful Roy Lynch Park again this year! More details will follow closer to the event.
Avoiding Car Break-Ins
As Officer Johnson and Captain White noted at the last EPNA meeting, summer tends to bring a rise in car break-ins in our neighborhood and the surrounding areas. Usually, the cars have been left unlocked, and the perpetrators have simply gone around testing door handles until they find one that opens. You can help prevent this from happening to you by locking your car, and it's also a good idea to remove any valuables (such as laptops, iPads, or cellphones) from your car whenever you leave it. If you find that your car has been rifled through, please call the Columbia Police Department at 803-252-2911 and make a report. Even if nothing has been stolen, it is helpful for the police to know where auto break-ins have been occurring so they can note patterns in that type of crime.
