Auntie Pam’s Country Store, Nielson’s Building Center and the Point Robert Chamber of Commerce are issuing a challenge to the community: Fancy up those drab mailboxes!
“We want to beautify the Point one box at a time,” said Pamala Sheppard, owner of Auntie Pam’s Country Store.
Sponsors are offering prizes for the best-decorated mailboxes through a contest that will run from June 17 to August 19. Contestants can register their spruced-up mailboxes at either Auntie Pam’s or Nielson’s, where they can also find a selection of decorating supplies for sale.
First prize will be a $100 gift certificate for Nielson’s Building Center, while second and third prize will be $50 gift certificates for Auntie Pam’s Country Store. “Additional prizes will be offered for the wackiest, most creative and best Northwest-themed mailbox,” Sheppard said.
