Please Remove all Flyers and Handouts from Chevy Chase Village

A couple of months ago, we posted flyers in Chevy Chase Village (CCV) and the police called and asked us to take them down.  We did.  Since then we've asked all of our volunteers to look at the map, note the boundaries and refrain from posting flyers there.  Our most recent track of Sassafras went through CCV, and we believe it could have been daylight when she walked there, so we tried a different tactic to reach the members of the community - a small hand out that read, "Lost Dog / Please help us bring her home" with a telephone number to call, the blog's address, and photographs of Sassafras.  The police have informed us that they have received complaints about these handouts from members of the community, so we are asking those near or in CCV who spot a handout to please remove it.

The individuals in CCV that we've met over the length of the search have uniformly expressed sympathy and concern for Sass' loss, and we'd really like them all to know how much that is appreciated.  For those who were angered by our handouts, please accept our sincere apologies.

Anyone who lives in the area or who is on a listserv that serves it, please help us get the word out by posting details and talking with your neighbors.
