Letter to the Editor

Thank you to Ken

Wednesday, May 25, 2011

I know there was a wonderful thank you in the paper to the community from the Spirit Lake post office regarding their huge postal food drive. I would like to let everyone know that this event would not happen without the hard work of Ken Henderson, president of the NALC Branch 3463 in Spirit Lake, and all of his dedicated letter carriers. Although this is a nationwide program, it is totally voluntary, and Ken's passion and commitment is what makes it happen. I serve UDMO in three counties, and this is the only post office I know of that chooses to participate in the letter drive. Ken finds that hard to believe, but it takes someone who cares deeply to organize it, unselfish letter carriers willing to do all the extra work, and a terrific community that keeps on responding. It is no wonder we love serving in this community!
