Greater Boston PCC Receives 

Gold Award for Communication Program Excellence

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.
