THANK A  MAILMAN DAY

Imagine your life without mail.  Sometimes it is not that great as our bills and legal notices are delivered through the mail.  However, the things we cherish most like a birthday card from a friend or relative, an invitation to a wedding or a letter from someone special are delivered to us via a mailman.

So reach out today and thank your mailman.  This person works hard everyday to deliver those parcels to us.  As the saying goes, “Through rain or snow, or sleet or hail, we’ll carry the mail. We will not fail”

Interesting Postal History:
