Glade Park Post Office Needs Youi!

All Glade Parkers who utilize Glade Post Post Office to receive mail should in good conscience donate a minimum of $20 a year to the cause, and volunteer to help with cleaning and upkeep. Since it is a voluntary community effort it is understandable that good citizens might at times need some reminding. For those who have moved to Glade Park since the present "kiosk" became operational, or for those who would like to refresh their memories, you are invited to read the 6 year history of what it took to secure the present facility, and how it relies on community participation. If you use the GP Post Office please send at least a $20 donation. Additional donations are accepted and appreciated. Mail donations to:

GPCS Post Office Account
P.O. Box 23162
Glade Park, CO 81523
