About a year ago, in an effort to remind the public of the joys of sending postcards, a few of the letter carriers at the New Haven, Connecticut Post Office held a postcard rally. The beautiful postcards of the Connecticut shoreline and attractions were donated by the New Haven Visitors Bureau. The postage was paid for by the Letter Carriers Union, Branch #19. We came out in our Hawaiian shirts and greeted the postal customers by handing out free postcards. Although it was raining heavy with a tornado warning in the area, the rally was quite successful with many chatty patrons, grateful for the postcard gift….Future rallies are being considered.
