Rural residents, please be aware of your house, yard and also when driving past your neighbours' yards, because there have been many break-ins, again. Recently east of Mayfair the culprits left a huge mess, even going into an attic. They tossed, turned went into every dresser and cupboard searching for certain items of value. Other farm buildings had a thorough going through with a big mess left behind. This crime had to have been done at night because they forgot to turn off the lights.
Another farm house a few miles away had the same going through. Rural crime watch signs and people patrolling their area are important. We cannot live in fear but it's difficult to protect yourself. This is informing everyone please beware.
Mass schedule for All Saints Catholic Church in Mayfair is Sunday 2:30 p.m. for January. February mass is Sundays at 11 a.m.
