Price change of a first class letter

Dear All,

Just wanted to make sure everyone is aware of the price change of a first class letter starting tomorrow, Sunday, January 27th. The new rate will be 55 cents (the current rate is 50 cents). You will still be able to use your “Forever Stamps” that you currently have. For those of you who enjoy trivia, this is the largest increase since 1991 when postage went from a quarter to 29 cents. Post card rates will remain the same at 35 cents.

I have also attached the ten holidays that the Postal Service observes during the year. Hopefully this information is helpful. Please feel free to forward it to others who may be interested including those outside the district since this does affect everyone.
