'Halloween Station' to Open Oct. 22

In keeping with tradition, the Boca Rio Branch will offer a "Halloween Station" postmark to Trick or Treaters who bring their own envelopes on Saturday, October 22, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

The Post Office is located at 8185 Via Ancho Road in Boca Raton. Stop by and say hello to postal managers and Boca Raton Stamp Club members in costume for the occasion. And while you’re there, purchase some jack-o-‘lantern stamps.

In the spirit of Halloween, the Postal Service has issued these delightfully eerie stamps featuring photographs of four different jack-o’-lanterns. These creatively carved pumpkins have been symbols of Halloween in the United States since the late 19th century, not long after celebrations of the holiday began here.

This is an off-the-clock activity for employees.
