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.

Boston PCC Honors Veterans


On December 7 Nick Francescucci, Jim Holland, Mike Shields and Al Silverstein visited the Veterans Hospital in West Roxbury. We were invited by David Hencke of the VA.

Opening  remarks were delivered by Karen Acerra-Williams, Deputy Director, VA Boston Healthcare.

Nick then spoke about the connection between the high percentage of veterans who work for the USPS in the Greater Boston area and our responsibility to recognize their service and sacrifice.

Most Importantly, 35 veterans  received handmade pens crafted by PCC Board member Al Silverstein, along with cards, message pads and, of course, postage stamps. Thankfully and gratefully, 5 WW2 Veterans were present and were also honored, with the longest and loudest ovation on the 73rd anniversary of National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.

 

November PCC Event a Huge Success!

On Wednesday, November 15th, the Greater Boston Postal Customer Council held a very special 3-part event at American Legion Post 440 in Newton, MA.  With over 40 attendees, it was one of the most successful events of the year.

Adam Lewenberg, Postal Advocate Inc, opened the program by discussing new postage rates going into effect in January 2018.  He informed the audience on the best way to prepare for the changes and offered insight into how these changes will impact mailing operations.

The second presentation was on International Mail changes taking effect in 2018.  Steve Smith, Base 60 Consulting and Merry Law, WorldVU LLC, provided information on how International Mail will be defined as "Goods" or "Documents" starting in January 2018. 

Finally, Jim Holland, Marketing Manager, Greater Boston District USPS, unveiled the 2017 Flag stamp with David Hencke, of the VA Hospital.  Mr. Hencke was also presented with kits and pens made by Al Silverstein, PCC Board Member.  These kits and pens were distributed to the patients at the VA Hospital. 

The event was sponsored by Creel Printing, Boston University, R.R. Donnelly Logistics Solutions and The Berkshire Company.
