Saturday, May 13, is the 25th anniversary National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) annual nationwide food drive. The Stamp Out Hunger® Food Drive, the country's largest single-day food drive, provides residents with an easy way to donate food to those in need in the community.
Emery Townsend has delivered a lot of mail in his 60 years as a U.S. Postal Service contract route carrier. In 1957 Townsend and bride Bebe signed their first four-year contract for the Ragged Mountain and Muddy Creek areas.
Cedaredge area postal carrier Patsy Arnold has earned a personal commendation from the postmaster general.
Last summer while doing her mail route, she responded to a potentially dangerous situation that involved a young child and helped secure a safe outcome to events.
When Emery Townsend first began making swift completion of his appointed rounds as a highway contractor for the U.S. Postal Service in Somerset, a gallon of gas cost 24 cents, cars with big tail fins were popular, and Slinkys and Hula Hoops were the top selling toys. That year the Soviet Union launched the first successful spacecraft, and the long-running television show "Perry Mason" debuted.
The generosity of Delta citizenry was remarkable in Saturday's annual postal food drive. During these trying economic times, the Delta community contributed over 4,000 pounds of nonperishable food for those in need.
