Iowans who want to commemorate the new year with a special souvenir don’t have to look far — only as far as their mailbox. Most post offices across Iowa are offering a millennium postmark for both December 31st, 1999 and January 1st of 2000. U-S Postal Service Iowa spokesman Rich Watkins says Iowans may send in to the post office whatever they want postmarked in a stamped, self-addressed envelope, or they can bring the items to the post office in person. He says the postmarks do NOT have to be obtained right away. They’ll be available through about 100 post offices statewide through February 29th. Watkins says there’s also a 33-cent millennium stamp that’s just gone on sale Monday.
