Cascade Charter Township Manager - Shake Your Mailbox! | News
This Saturday, October 20th, has been set for the fourth annual "Shake Your Mailbox" day in Michigan!.. Governor Snyder recently made the proclaimation in order to help redue the number of mailboxes damaged this Winter from snow and snow plows. The campaign stated as a statewide initiative in 2009.
The County Road Association of Michigan reports that a loose mailbox may not withstand standard snow removal operations; it should be repaired or replaced so that you have fewer headaches this winter.
This is also a good time to replace worn hinges on mailbox doors and repaint or replace reflective house numbers so the postal worker or emergency responder can find your home more easily.
