Unfortunately, according to an article in the New York Times, the postal service will not be delivering regular mail on Saturdays starting in August. This is something we have been dreading, but expecting, for the past few years. While package delivery and some other services may continue, the regular mail may not. We will keep you up to date on these developments, but presumably Priority Mail or FedEx would still deliver on Saturday.
If you have strong feelings on this, as we expect you may, we would also encourage you to be in communication with your representatives in Washington. We know how much the girls love to write and hear from you on Saturday. Camp is such a unique place where kids can develop without the restraints of instant messaging culture and learn real person to person communication. Communication skills are necessary for adulthood and kids are often not learning these skills well enough at school. It is unfortunate that the Postal Service is moving away from their vital legacy delivering the real physical handwritten letter.
UPDATE (4/11/2013): It looks like the postal service bowed to pressure and will not be ending Saturday mail. This is great news for the girls!
