Annual Yard Sale Info
The Great Oaks Board has discussed the merits of a neighborhood garage sale for the first weekend in August 2020.  Due to the large number of people and traffic this event draws, given the current health crisis in our country, the majority of the board cannot support the potential for putting the health of our neighbors and neighborhood at risk by endorsing or organizing this annual event. 
 
We also recognize that health concerns differ among age groups and some people have a higher tolerance for the potential risks involved.  We understand that there are residents who would still like to have a garage sale and that is a personal decision.  A group of like-minded residents could organize and schedule a yard sale and promote them in any manner they may choose, once again a personal decision. 
 
It is our fondest desire for everyone to be safe and healthy and we will let everyone decide for themselves how they would like to proceed.
US Postal Service Information
Met with the Hopkinsville Postmaster today (June 2) to acquire information related to mail delivery concerns from Great Oaks residents.  The Covid-19 pandemic has impacted the US Postal service locally and nationally.  Staff shortages and increased parcel mail volume related to increased online purchases.  When UPS and FedEx can't meet the demands on their shipping volume related to staff shortages those companies send that volume to the USPS to deliver.  Our local office delivered 22000 parcels alone yesterday (June 1st). Mail is delivered daily but often it is not completed until the night. Employees locally sometimes working to 11 pm.   If someone is looking for a great career now is a good time to consider the USPS (United States Postal Service).  I thanked the Post Office and all if it's hard-working and dedicated staff on behalf of Great Oaks residents
