With many children heading back to school this month, the Lenox, IA, Post Office team held a special Views of Our Planets-themed event to welcome the new school year.

During the cosmic gala, children had the opportunity to help Lenox employees attach inflatable planets featured in the new stamp series to the ceiling. Beyond gazing contemplatively at planets in the solar system orbiting the sun high above, kids also received stickers and pencils to help on their scholastic journeys ahead.

The Lenox team immersed themselves in their universal role by making special t-shirts to wear during the festivities. The local newspaper took notice of the celebration and wrote a glowing review.

“If you haven’t seen the planetary display in the Lenox Post Office, it is worth the time to take a look,” the article said. “You may also want to purchase a sheet of these special stamps while they are available.”
