Special T. Rex Postmark Designed by Local Artist Available to Customers
LEESBURG, VA — Postmaster Timothy Lloyd will host a “Customer Appreciation Day” on Saturday, Aug. 31, from 9 to 11:30 a.m., at the Leesburg Post Office located at 25 Catoctin Circle SE.
“The event is an opportunity to show our customers how much we appreciate their business, answer their questions, and to celebrate a very special pictorial postmark specific to this community’s Post Office,” Lloyd said.
