Shake Your Mailbox Day - Oct 19th, 2012 - Local

Saturday, October 20, 2012 is "Shake Your Mailbox Day". It is an opportunity for residents across the Great Lakes State to take proactive steps toward ensuring their mailbox is safely and properly maintained prior to the start of winter maintenance operations on Michigan roads. Residents can prepare their mailboxes for winter by tightening screws and firmly verifying the post and receptacles are secure enough to endure large amounts of thrown snow.
