• By now, all Freeman postal users should have received your survey form from the U.S. Postal Service. It is very important for each of you to return this survey. We do not want to lose our post office. I would suggest marking number 1 - keep the post office but with realigned window service hours. Also, you must designate what hours you would like to see the window open. I would suggest something like 8 to 11 a.m. and then 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. Also, make any additional comments you would like. There will be a meting at 3 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 30, at 109 E Main Street in Freeman. Everyone is encouraged to attend this meeting. You can also ask questions of Christy Goddard at the Post Office. If you have misplaced your form, or did not receive one, more copies are available at the post office.
