October 8th...

Hello and welcome,

I was VERY excited to learn that USPS had finally put out some Halloween Forever stamps. Jack O- Lanterns no less! I quickly ordered some online as I didn't want to run the risk of my local Post Office being out of them (plus I wanted a whole bunch of them).

From the USPS website (here): "ANOKA, MN — Let all ghosts and goblins beware. The U.S. Postal Service today kicked off the 2016 Halloween celebration by issuing the Jack-o’-lanterns Forever Stamps at Anoka City Hall Plaza. Anoka is known as the “Halloween Capital of the World.”

The sheet of 20 stamps features four different photographs of jack-o’-lanterns. The jack-o’-lanterns were carved by Paul Montanari and photographed by Sally Andersen-Bruce. The stamps were designed by art director Derry Noyes.

“The Postal Service is proud to issue its first Halloween-themed stamps,” said U.S. Postal Service Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President Joseph Corbett, who dedicated the stamps." Read the rest of the press release here and don't forget to pick some up before they're gone!

Happy haunting,

Mark Harvey
