I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the postal employees in the Postal Service’s Northern New England District for the extraordinary performance they provided during the recent flooding throughout the area.
Media reports indicate that it was the worst flooding in years, and true to the motto, “Neither snow nor rain nor gloom of night shall stay these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds,” our employees reported to work to ensure that postal customers got their mail.
Some left their own homes, with basements flooded, to report to duty and get the mail home. Others drove miles out of their way to get around closed roads and flooded highways, or braved thigh-high water to make their “appointed rounds.”
The dedication of all of our postal employees helped provide our customers with the service they deserve, and once again showed their dedication to providing a vital service to our community. They are all true professionals.
I am proud of their hard work and perseverance and proud to be a member of this postal team.
Thanks, everyone, for the hard work. It was greatly appreciated.
