The Mail pre­pared in event of postal dis­rup­tion

The Drumheller Mail - - AROUND TOWN - Pa­trick Ko­lafa The Drumheller Mail

In light of a pos­si­ble dis­rup­tion of postal ser­vice, The Drumheller Mail is mak­ing al­ter­na­tive ar­range­ments for read­ers to re­ceive their news in a timely fash­ion.

The Cana­dian Union of Postal Work­ers voted on Sun­day, Septem­ber 9 in favour of job ac­tion, and if no agree­ment is reached by Septem­ber 26, there could be a lock­out or strike. The Drumheller Mail has made al­ter­na­tive ar­range­ments to con­tinue to bring the news to read­ers.

“We have been through this same sit­u­a­tion many times be­fore,” said Ossie Sheddy, ed­i­tor and pub­lisher of The

Drumheller Mail. “We un­der­stand how im­por­tant it is for our read­ers and cus­tomers to have the news­pa­pers dis­trib­uted in a timely man­ner.”

If there is a dis­rup­tion, it may af­fect de­liv­ery start­ing with the Septem­ber 26 edi­tion of The Mail. Along with the var­i­ous dis­tri­bu­tion boxes through­out the com­mu­nity, sub­scribers will be able to pick up their news­pa­pers at des­ig­nated mail­boxes at River­side Value Drug Mart, Fre­son Bros, Ex­tra Foods, and of course The Drumheller Mail of­fice. Out of town sub­scribers of

The Drumheller Mail will be able to pick up their news­pa­per at the vil­lage of­fices in Car­bon, Delia, Hus­sar, Mun­son, Mor­rin, Big Val­ley, Rock­y­ford and Stan­dard. The pa­per will also be avail­able at Akokiniskway Golf Course in Rose­bud and the Rum­sey Li­brary in Rum­sey on Tues­day and Wed­nes­day from noon to 6 p.m.
