The very famous Batsto Post Office will be open from Noon until 3 PM to hand cancel….without a zip code… mail. ( pre-stamped ). One of only four places in the entire United States where this can be done!
While in the Post Office, stop in at the display area next door and have some cider & cookies to really get in the spirit. Gabe Coia will be in there from 1 – 3 PM singing and playing a variety of stringed instruments.
We will have a small, simple children’s craft activity on the porch of the General store.
