November is letter writing month for Reagan Elementary School. For the past several years, they’ve invited Omaha, NE, Postmaster, Keith Reid to stop and visit their second grade classes, and this year was no exception.

Postmaster Reid not only spoke about the importance of letter writing, he also took time to read 7 Little Postmen to over 80 children in attendance. During his visit, Reid presented a coloring book and a yo-yo with a postal logo as special gifts to each student.

The children also received a special treat as Stoneyridge Carrier Annex City Carrier Bill Westmore stopped by with his vehicle for a visit. Westmore spoke to the students about the delivery of mail and safety around a postal vehicle when the carrier comes into their neighborhood. He also spoke about dog safety and the importance of keeping their dog under control when the carrier delivers mail. The students had the chance to go through the LLV to see how different it is from their family vehicles.

“I always look forward to and enjoy Keith’s presentation,” said second grade teacher Jessica Bader.

    How wonderful! Children love sending and receiving mail, and recognize how very special it is, compared to the digital media with which they are being raised. There is something of a backlash arising against Cyberspace, and people are rediscovering the value of tangible mail. These children — truly — are our future.
