Priority Mail on Parade


This unique float was showcase earlier this year by Brownell, KS, Officer in Charge Austin McGaughey and Postmaster Relief Julie Nuttle at the Brownell Labor Day parade. While displaying the popular Priority Mail brand to a cheering crowd, the team also handed out candy tucked inside white envelopes as well as photocopied versions of postal coloring books to all their local fans.

The float was one of more than 25 entries in the parade and the most original in the show.

    As an automation mail clerk, I have to say that customers, especially business and not-for-profit, really need to know what kind of mailings will survive the trip through the DBCS machines! We see so many newsletters, ads, etc. that just jam the machines and get damaged. I hope the PCC week includes information on what will and won’t work in automation.

    The PMG will take care of that…

    I think that’s part of the agenda. The more information customers of USPS have about what will work in machines, the happier they’ll be when the mail arrives intact.
