Change of Address vs. Forwarded Mail
If you plan to be away from home for any extended period of time and want to receive your Montmorency County Tribune at your new location, please call us at 989-785-4214 to have your mailing address changed. When you are ready to return home, just let us know and we will change your address back to your home address.

Please do this even if you have contacted the postal service to forward your mail. The postal service only forwards second class mail (which a newspaper is considered to be) for approximately 60 days, than they no longer will do so. This means you will not receive your newspaper.

Please note: If you have the online digital subscription that you use while your mailed newspaper is on hold, your subscription will not be extended, as you are still receiving access to the newspaper.
