Repeated Break-ins at Dirtworks


Due to the numerous break-ins at Dirtworks over the past several months, Midge Price and Bob Findley took matters in their own hands when replacing the stolen toolbox. We continue to work with the police in reporting the break-ins and replacing lost items. We would appreciate any suggestions for deterrence. Many thanks to the Plant Sale and Dirtworks volunteers who have become experts at replacing locks and mending fences.
