Ilwaco Celebrates Coast Guard


To celebrate the launch of the United States Coast Guard Forever Stamp and honor members of the Coast Guard, two Postmasters in the Portland District came together to assemble a special dedication ceremony in Ilwaco, WA.

Ilwaco Postmaster Jim Wills and Ocean Park, WA, Postmaster Barbara Henry worked with a local artist to design a special postmark for the event. They also arranged to have the artist attend the gathering to sign commemorative envelopes. Members of the community appreciated the opportunity to support the men and women of the Coast Guard, many of whom live in the local area. The event was well-received by residents.
