More than a year ago, the Kingwood Garden Club donated their time to beautify the Kingwood Post Office with flowers and shrubs. The flowers continue to bloom and look pretty, but the flower beds and lawn surrounding the post office have become full of weeds, old tree limbs and rubbish. “I spoke with Anthony Spriggs, the postmaster of the Kingwood Post Office, at least five times last year about the condition of the grounds. He informed me that they had to share a lawnmower with the Humble Post Office, which made it difficult for them to mow in a timely manner,” said Kingwood resident Tammie McCoy. The lawnmower, according to Linda Helarie, acting manager of the Kingwood Post Office, has been in need of repair. “We have only one lawnmower and it has been broken,” she said. “I have asked for someone to come to Kingwood as soon as we get the mower repaired.” Because the post office has custodians on staff, there is no budget for regular lawn service. “I keep hoping a service club in the area would take on the post office grounds as a community service project,” McCoy said.
