Patriotic celebration


Letter Carriers from Tacoma, Lynnwood, Mountlake Terrace and Mill Creek, WA, joined with their colleagues at the Bothell Post Office to take part in a Fourth of July parade in Bothell.

The united team drove the patriotically-decorated ProMaster vehicle (behind the group) in the parade held on Saturday, July 2. Spectators at the parade clapped and cheered during the celebration, reveling in the colorful displays.

Happy Independence Day!

Postal Pride on Parade

Postal pride on parade

Last week, employees at the Miles City, MT, Post Office made their second annual appearance in the People’s Parade. The Independence Day event captured the attention of the local community with a little help from the always patriotic colors of the USPS Long-Life Vehicle.

Postmaster Stephen Miller received the original idea to participate in the parade from his wife shortly after his installation as Postmaster in 2013. Employees were eager to jump on board and donated their time and decorating expertise to give their entry in the parade an extra red, white, and blue boost.

“We used a trailer for our float last year, and I pulled it with my truck,” said Miller. “We had a collection box on the trailer with hay bales and lots of red, white and blue banners, bows and accessories.

“This year, we didn’t have much time to prepare for the 4th of July event, but we received permission from Manager of Post Office Operations Ronda Mailey to use the LLV and were eager to get started. Everyone worked together as a team to decorate the LLV on the morning of the parade. We also promoted our Priority Mail and Priority Mail Express during the parade and it was a big success!”

Happy Independence Day!
