Lost and Found
A helpful tip from a neighbor: If you have lost a pet or valuable item and wish to post a lost and found notice, keep in mind that the Lake Sarasota community newsgroup can be ideal for getting the word out.
The group can issue an email to all its members, nearly all of whom are residents. Addresses or phone numbers will only be seen by members, and are not visible outside of the group.
So if you or a neighbor have the need, keep the group in mind. If you're not a member, it only takes a minute to join.
Also, if you have lost a pet, especially a dog, be sure to post a notice at the dog park. It's a hub for dog lovers, and they and their network can be on the lookout in neighborhoods beyond Lake Sarasota.
