It’s not too early to get Christmas care and gift packages ready and mailed, especially for servicemen and women and those living outside of the country.
The U.S. Postal Service, including all Franklin County post offices, has released deadlines to assure mail will arrive at its required destination in time for Christmas, according to Preston Postmaster Val Porter.
