Community Pitches in to Beautify Fairfax Post Office


Thanks to the generosity of the local community and a little hard work, the Fairfax, MN, Post Office building recently received a nice facelift.

It all started when Postmaster Lori Kiecker (in photo) attended a meeting of the Fairfax Civic and Commerce Association. She asked if the Post Office would qualify for assistance from the association’s Decorate Fairfax Fund.

The fund provided for new plants from a pair of local merchants. Kiecker, her boyfriend and his dad removed the old plants and replaced them. Early this summer, the local Cairo 4-H Club approached Kiecker and volunteered to mulch and plant annual flowers as a community service project.

With the new flower beds in place, things were about to get even better. The local VFW provided new paint for a couple of deteriorating areas on the front of the building.

Kiecker loves the new look, as do her customers.

“It’s just so nice. The community loves all the improvements and we’ve received so many compliments,” she said.
