The old bulletin boards at the Overgaard Post Office were removed some time ago to allow the Post Office building to be painted and maintained. Since the old bulletin boards were quite worn and shabby, the Chamber of Commerce arranged to have them replaced and supplied the materials to make that happen. Dennis Lofstedt stepped up and donated his time and talent to construct the 4 new bulletin boards. When you see them, I’m sure you will agree that Dennis did a great job. The new bulletin boards are covered with a hinged frame and Plexiglas window to keep out the rain and wind which often removed posted information.
The new bulletin boards are sponsored by local businesses or organizations that are responsible for monitoring the information posted and keeping the boards neat and tidy. There are now 4 different bulletin boards.
Two are designated for Community Events which will accommodate bulletins related to things happening around Heber/Overgaard that are sponsored by the Chamber, Churches, local organizations, schools and the like. The size of items posted is limited to 8 ½” X 11”. Items are to be posted with push pins or similar fasteners. Tape of any kind cannot be used. Anything posted that does not conform to the rules posted above each bulletin board will be removed and destroyed daily.
One of the new bulletin boards is for posting notices of items For Sale, Garage Sales, services available, business cards and the like. The size of items posted is limited to 5” x 7” to allow as many postings as possible. Items are to be posted with push pins or similar fasteners. Tape of any kind cannot be used. Items larger than 5” x 7”, or anything posted that does not conform to the rules posted above each bulletin board will be removed and destroyed daily.
The fourth new bulletin board is for Community Information and is used by the Chamber of Commerce. This bulletin board will contain information of interest to the general public like address and phone numbers of things like the Fire Department, Water Company, Trash Compactor, Electric Company, Churches, Local Clubs and Organizations and the like. This bulletin board will be locked and is maintained by the Chamber.
If you have any questions, you can contact the Chamber of Commerce at (928) 535-5777.
