  3. The LPM needs YOU to go POSTAL! by Stacy Van Oast

    Seriously, we need someone to learn the fine art of preparing and delivering bulk mail to our fine U.S. Post Office.

    Are you detail-oriented?

    Are you able to treat postal workers politely and cordially, so that our mail does indeed go out?

    Do you live in the vicinity of the LPM Headquarters in Hazel Park and/or the U.S Post Office in Troy (16 Mile and Crooks)?

    Are you physically able to lift and carry bulk mail trays full of letters? Do you have a vehicle capable of carrying up to 25 trays?

    Does your job situation permit you to be able to make the deliveries on weekdays, between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm? (It would only be once a month or so)

    If you answered "YES" to the abvoe questions, please READ ON!

    Final Questions:

    1) Would you be willing to do the final preparation of the mailing (strapping, tray labels, form filling out) and deliver the mail to the Post Office once a month or so to assist the LPM with getting it's mail out?

    2) Would you be willing to attend a class, this Wednesday, October 4, in Troy,that will train you in the finer skills of bulk mailing? (9-5)

    If you answered "YES" to either of these last two questions, PLEASE WRITE ME BACK RIGHT AWAY!

    We have a mailing ready to be finalized and delivered on this Monday, October 2; perhaps you could get some hands-on experience right away!

    Write me at stacyvo@eesc.com or call me at (810)784-8783 if your interested, willing, and available to help us out by 'going postal' for liberty!
