Cherokee mailmen say goodbye

Wednesday, September 10, 2008

Two long-time Cherokee Post Office mail delivery people were recently honored at the local Post Office, as they retired from their duties. Howard Rupp and Van Nelson were the mailmen honored by their government and saluted at a brunch at the local Post Office recently.

In the photo to the right, Howard Rupp (left) is pictured above receiving his Appreciation For Service Award from Cherokee's Postmaster, Kathy Fitzgerald for his 22 years of service. Below, Van Nelson recieves his award from Postmaster Fitzgerald. Photos by Mike Leckband.
