6 - Hinton News Tues. Dec. 16, 2008 w th Care Tips from Your Holiday Shipping Experts. With 19 billion cards, ,letters and packages expected to be ~elivered this holiday season, the ~U.S. Postal Service has some tips to ,help get gifts to their destination .swiftly and safely. The Postal Service is making it "easier to ship packages to family and 'friends this season," says Deputy ?ostmaster General and Chief 'Operating Officer Patrick R. Donahoe. "proper addressing and :proper packaging will help us give ".every gift the service it deserves." The Postal Service offers free, environmentally friendly Priority, Mail and Express Mail boxes and envelopes. These supplies can be ordered at or picked up at a local Post Office. "The best shipping value may be : our Priority Mail Flat-Rate boxes,"• says Donahoe. "No calculating of postage or weighing is needed. If it fits, it ships." The Postal Service also offers pre- packaged shipping products, READY POST, sold at local Post Offices for customers needing sturdy, secure boxes and envelopes. "Save money on Priority and Express Mail prices when you mail online with Click-N-Ship," adds Donahoe. "The more you ship, the more you save. And when a package is ready to be shipped, log on to to schedule free package pickup from home or office. Skip the trip and do all of your shipping online." Helpful packaging tips: • Make sure packages are able to withstand processing without the contents or packaging breaking. • Cushion items with bubble wrap, newspaper, or "foam peanuts" so they do not shift during transit. • Wrap each item separately when packing more than one item in the same box. • Remove batteries from electronic devices and wrap separately. • Close and shake the box to see if there is enough cushioning. If items are shifting, add more cushioning. • Mark packages "Fragile" in large print on the outside of the box when shipping materials that might be more likely to break. • When re-using a box make sure The Hinton Delphi Club met for its regular luncheon meeting on November 11 at 1:00 p.m. at Sugar Mills Restaurant with hostesses Margaret Willey, Virginia Middy, and Elizabeth Huffman greeting 18 members and two guests. The tables were arranged in a fall motif with lovely pumpkin arrangements, candles, and leaves• Mrs. Stephen Jones, president, called the meeting to order, introduced guests Dorothy Jean Boley and Myra Ziegler, and thanked the hostesses for providing the lovely, seasonable table decorations. The blessing was led by hostess Virginia Maddy. Joy Stone, secretary pro-tern read the October minutes which were approved. Treasurer Nancy Richmond reported a balance of $1,318.44, which was filed for audit. As no secretary was named, it was agreed that that office will be supplied monthly until such a time that it may be filled. Five new members, Shirla Ballard, Jane Budd, Vera Epling, Jean Gore, and Donna Pivont were selected by secret ballot to be invited invitations to become members and attend the December meeting as guests of the club. Members donated $107 to give to the Toy Fund. Mrs. Richmond will send that check. A minute of silence was observed in honor of Veterans. As there was no further business, a motion to adjourn was made by Katherine Holt and seconded by Virginia Maddy. Mrs. Jones introduced Myra Ziegler who presented the program, "Magnificent Morocco," a wonderfully witty travelogue in story and beautiful pictures, which detailed her recent trip. Mrs, Ziegler displayed maps and many outstanding photographs taken by her husband• She also wore Moroccan slippers and brought other items of interest to display. At the close of the program Mrs. Ziegler was presented a lovely pumpkin arrangement from the club. The other centerpiece was won by a member• For RENT or SALE We Accept HUD "Rent to Own Houses Available" I think there is one higher office than president and I would call to become members of The Delphi that patriot.

This ensures the safe return of an item that could not be delivered should the outside label become damaged or fall off. • Always use tape designed for sealing shipping boxes. Do not use string, cellophane and masking tape to seal packages. • Packages can weigh up to 70 Ibs. and measure up to 130 inches in combined length and width. Make sure the width is measured around ; the largest point of the package. Guidelines for addressingi envelopes and packages: • Print complete address clearly. • A complete address includes: • the recipients name • Post Office Box or street number • street name • suffix (Ave., St., etc.) • directional (N, S, E, W) • secondary address (apartment or suite number) • city, state and 5-digit ZIP Code . For example: 123 S. Main St.Apt 4, Washington, DC 20001 • Use the proper ZIP Code. ZIP Codes can be found at or by calling 1-800ASK-USPS. • Print the delivery and return addresses on the same side of the envelope or package. • Always use a return address. It tells the Postal Service where to return mail if it cannot be delivered. The Postal Service recommends the following marl-by dates to ensure your gift arrives on time Dec. 16--Parcel Post, the most economical shipping service Dec. 20---First-Class Mail Dec. 20--Priority Mail Dec. 23--Express Mail Due to security requirements, packages bearing postage stamps that weigh more than 13 ounces must be presented to a letter carrier or retail associate at the Post Office and cannot be dropped in blue collection boxes.
