On behalf of the board of directors we are pleased to inform you all that the stolen trailer and our decorations were found. Thank you all for everything. The outpouring of community support has been overwhelming and please know that it has all been so deeply appreciated. We did sustain some damage/loss to certain items but the vast majority of our very special and unique items have returned to us unscathed. A huge thank you to the Belmont Police dept. the county of San Mateo, the Mountain View Voice, the Palo Alto Daily, the San Mateo Daily Journal, Google, The Los Altos History Museum, and so many private individuals, you know who you are. We are ever so grateful. Now on to Halloween 2016. Let’s make this the best event yet.
Please help if you can. The decorations, props, lighting, steampunk style machines, tombstones, fog machines, sound equipment, etc., for our Where History Meets Haunting Presents Inventions and Imaginations event, as well as the trailer they were stored in, was stolen from Belmont, CA, July 27, 2016, between 12:00 and 3:00pm. Almost everything we need for this event, which is really two events, a free kids trick-or-treating event and ticketed evening programs, are gone. Our Halloween programs are our biggest fundraisers of the year. They support living history programs, collections care, arts programs and more. We are looking for a 2003 white Pace American cargo trailer full of the items listed above. The license plate is 4AK8870 VIN#4P2FB08193U037209 any info helps. Please call Belmont Police at 650-595-7400 or contact the Friends of “R” House at email@example.com or Rengstorff.firstname.lastname@example.org Please share this and help us make this go viral.
