MARLBOROUGH – The first snow’s on the ground, the city’s holiday banners have been hung and the rush is on to get those holiday packages in the mail.
On Nov. 15, Postmaster Nicholas Tselikis joined Mayor Arthur Vigeant and a couple of young visitors to announce holiday programs in the city.
Tselikis showed some of the holiday-themed postage stamps currently on sale. Additionally, in order to get holiday packages delivered by Dec. 25, Tselikis urged people to get their gifts in the mail by Dec. 17 for USPS retail ground service and first-class mail service, Dec. 19 for Priority Mail service and Dec. 23 for Priority Mail Express Service.
Tselikis also announced that the post office will be open Sundays during the holiday season, and there will be a hiring event on Dec. 17 with the Framingham Post Office.
As Abi Harris and her little brother, Ben, sent letters to Santa, Vigeant announced the annual “Home for the Holidays” event at the Union Common on Friday, Dec. 2 from 6 to 8 p.m.
There will be a petting zoo, as well as performances by the Marlborough High School Choral Group and the Marlborough Symphony Orchestra.
In addition, the Marlborough Historical Society will present “Christmas at the Farm” on Saturday, Dec. 3 from 2 to 4 p.m.
