The Eastborough Fall Festival was held on the evening of October 11, 2016. Once again Erin Fulghum organized a great time for everyone. Be sure and thank her when you see her. I want to also thank Officer Matt Young from the Wichita Police Department for bringing out one of the Bomb Unit Trucks and the Bomb Robot. Many people young and old enjoyed watching Officer Young demonstrate the robot and explain what the Bomb Squad does. The Wichita Bomb Squad serves a 19 County area of south central Kansas.
In addition to the Bomb Truck and robot, our very own Officer Derrick Vickery and his wife Lori were there with their Search and Rescue dog, Rookie. Officer and Mrs. Vickery founded the K9 Search and Rescue of Kansas many years ago and enjoy being able to participate in the Eastborough Festivals. The children also enjoyed the inflatables that were brought in and many people enjoyed a night off from cooking by purchasing great food from the food vendor which was available.
If you weren't able to make it this year, I hope to see you next year.

There have been two reports in Eastborough in the last few weeks and several reports in the surrounding area of thefts from cars.
I would like to remind everyone to always lock your vehicles even in your own driveway and do not leave valuables such as cash, credit cards, electronic devices, etc. in your cars. Remember that it only takes a thief a few seconds to get into a car and leave without being noticed. Many times it is several days before someone notices they have been a victim.
Also it is a safety practice to always lock your vehicles as a sad story came from the Abilene Kansas area a few weeks ago when a toddler got into an unlocked vehicle in her own driveway while playing outside. She wasn’t noticed gone for a while then was found to have died in the hot car.
As always do not hesitate to call 911 if you see any suspicious people or activity in your neighborhood.
