Community Celebrates Reopening of Local Post Office

Cheryl Miles

Postmaster Relief Cheryl Jiles spent five months operating out of her COOP location after floodwaters swamped the town of Drake, CO. The Post Office had two feet of water running through the building, impacting mail for more than 400 people. New electrical, plumbing, flooring and furniture were among the repairs required.

“I kept telling people to watch for the flag,” said Jiles. “It was a great feeling to raise the flag and open our door for business.“

People from the community brought cookies, cakes, and plenty of smiles to the reopening.
