Community Holiday Tip: Mailboxes should not be used as a place to leave a note or money for anyone for pick up. Letter carriers are required to pick up anything that are left in your mailbox. If you leave a gift card in your mailbox for your letter carrier (or anyone)  be sure to put your return address on it or a bow to distinguish the item. If it is not noticed by the the carrier it will end up in the processing plant for destruction due to being undeliverable.      .......................It's a great tip thank you for submitting this ! :-)

Community Home Tip -  Yards should be all cleaned up of leaves and pine needles shortly as soon that yard waste pick-up will cease !
