It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood...

It was indeed a beautiful day in the neighborhood as PCC Executive Board Members Nick Francescucci, Postmaster of Boston and George Kippenhan, Manager of Consumer & Industry Contact dedicated the new Mister Rogers Stamp at WAAF Studios in Brighton on April 10. 

The dedication took place on the Matty & Nick Show (3-7pm on WAAF).  Hosts Matty Blake and Nick Stevens are pop culture experts who were honored to take part in a ceremony dedicated to one of their childhood idols: Mister Rogers.  

"He was such an instrumental part of our childhood, I am beyond flattered that we are a part of this special dedication," said Blake. 

After unveiling the new stamp live on 107.3 (as well as the "WAAF" and "Matty & Nick" social media pages), Postmaster Francescucci presented commemorative Mister Rogers plaques to Blake, Stevens and producer Stanley Bruno.

"As Mister Rogers famously stated, 'the greatest gift you give is your honest self', let me say what a delight it was to receive a USPS plaque as we honored one of America's most beloved teachers!" declared Stevens.

USPS Middlesex-Essex Processing & Distribution Center Tour

On Wednesday, May 2nd, the Greater Boston Postal Customer Council held a Plant Tour of the USPS Middlesex-Essex Processing and Distribution Center.  The event was well attended with over 50 participants and included a presentation, tour and lunch.  Duane Lariviere, the Senior Plant Manager kicked things off by providing an overview of the operation and fielded questions from the audience.  USPS staff members brought groups on to the production floor to view the Flats Sequencing System (FSS) and other various pieces of equipment throughout the 120,000+ square foot facility.  It was a very insightful tour and we appreciate the USPS team at Middlesex-Essex for providing the opportunity to view their operation.

Greater Boston PCC Honors Retiring Board Members

In December, at the Greater Boston PCC’s holiday meeting, Alice Gordon and Al Lacerda were formerly recognized as retired from the PCC Executive Board.
Alice and Al had a combined total of 40 plus years of service to the board, serving in varying capacities on the Executive Board.

They were recognized by those in attendance and the USPS provided wonderful large framed stamps that coincided with Al’s and Alice’s interests. The framed pieces included a message of gratitude from the PCC.

Alice was a longstanding member of the board serving in many different roles including Co-Chair.  She was also known as the designated proofer for all PCC copy that was sent out, and no one did it better!  A little known fact about Alice that was brought up was that she holds a spot in Postal trivia history.  When the government forced the Postal Service to give up its fledgling efforts in pioneering electronic commerce, Alice’s firm bought the E-COM system from them.

Alice has also joined the ranks of Executive Board Members granted Emeritus status.

Al Lacerda joined the Board in 2001.  Over his years of service Al served on the newsletter committee was and known as the provider of the Postal facts and trivia that appeared in the PCC newsletter.  He could always be counted on to keep the board up to date on the latest in hot rod and souped up car news.

All present provided a rousing standing ovation, and the board wished them well in their future endeavors.
