Next Christmas (Starts Now!!)
|Hi, Ted. I was wondering
if you could run the bit about accepting donated Christmas items for the
2007 "Christmas Drive-Thru at the Park" again. You ran it on
I know this seems very early, but Christmas decorations aren't on everyone's mind all year long. (Tis the season and all!) Besides, it's going to take a lot of effort and items to be able to kick it off next year.
The outside decorations at the library was the work of the Garden Club. Everything there was from our small stockpile of donated items. Thanks for all you do!
Collinsville Garden Club
|I received an opened and empty envelope from one of the Collinsville banks in my mail delivery Saturday Dec. 2nd. The bank pointed out the postmark was back in April and they recommended I check with the post office. My carrier remembered the envelope being already opened when it was received at the post office recently and had no way to trace it's path for the previous nine months. The bank did mention they had been notified of some other "old" postmarked mail deliveries recently. So, I'm left wondering if there has been a federal crime committed; or someone tried to do me a favor and put an old envelope that blew out of the trash at some point back in the mail; or just a not-so-funny practical joke? Any similar experiences out there? -- Ted Wright|
