No postal service today

The United States Postal Service announced on Monday that they will suspend mail services on today as part of the national day of mourning for the death of former President George H.W. Bush.

The organization said they would halt regular mail deliveries, retail services, and administrative office activity on Wednesday out of respect for the former president and to honor his lifetime of public service.

Some package delivery will occur on Wednesday in order to prevent too large of a backlog from developing during the early portion of the holiday delivery season.
