In the near future, carrier satchels and other equipment sufficient to place the service in operation will be received from the Bureau of Facilities.
However, delivery service can not be inaugurated until the houses are numbered and carriers selected. The numbering system will be supervised by town officials.
Delivery should be in force by July 1st.
Under the presidency of Loyal "Ty" Alyea, the Commercial Club of Lowell headed its 1953 agenda of projects with obtaining mail delivery service for Lowell. "Ty" worked indefatigably laying the ground work which brought Mr. Clark from Cincinnati last month for an investigation of postal service conditions.
Upon learning that the local postoffice has on its list of patrons approximately 800 families who pick their mail up at the postoffice, and box facilities, for few more than 400, Mr. Clark realized the tremendous amount of sorting done each day servicing general delivery patrons, for whom boxes are not available.
As a member of the Commercial Club, the Tribune takes pride in the accomplishment of this project which marks another step in Lowell's forward progress.
Interest in home delivery, initiated by such civic organizations as the Lowell Commercial club, Junior Chamber of Commerce and Lowell Junior Woman's club, stirred into action with the arrival of an inspector in December to make the survey requested by Hayden, who undertook his work as postmaster October 1.
The fostering clubs will work with the town board toward fulfillment of basic requirements, Hayden said.
