“Hey, Mary, do you want me to go out and bring in the mail? I just saw the mail truck stop at our box.”
Another day of reliable mail service. We residents of La Cañada Flintridge are served faithfully by our letter carriers. We expect our mail to be delivered to us six days a week in the morning or in the afternoon. Day in and day out, nothing stops the trusted postal patrol bringing our letters, catalogs, checks (we need more of these, please) and bills. Ugh.
I had the opportunity last week to meet with Roslyn Strawther, our postmaster since 2009. Strawther started her career as a carrier in Pacoima in 1983. She moved inside a year later to work the counter and soon was assigned to the cavernous warehouse in Pacoima where the mail is organized for residential and business delivery.
