Evening circle to

sponsor caroling

Post Office suggests

clearing ice, snow

Accidents can be prevented by clearing ice and snow from slippery surfaces for family, visitors and letter carriers. Letter carriers cannot make door or curb deliveries when the approach to the mailbox is hazardous because of snow or ice. Carriers are not allowed to attempt door delivery when there is a heavy buildup of snow or ice on sidewalks, steps or porches.

Snow must be cleared to the curbline for at least six feet on both sides of the mailbox so the carrier can approach and leave without backing up the vehicle. Ice is particularly dangerous on steps and walkways. A warm spell and then a quick freeze can make cleared sidewalks slicker than ever. By clearing a path, accidents can be prevented.

Ives sets services

for Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve Communion and Celebration Worship will be at Ives Chapel United Methodist Church Christmas Eve at 7 p.m. The same service will be available at Clearfield United Methodist Church at 11 p.m. on Christmas Eve.

Coal Creek Library

open by appointment

Coal Creek Library, Vinland, will be open during the winter months by appointment only. Visitors should dress warmly. Contact Martha Smith, 594-3960.
