The Post Office is normally not in the news. However, it holds a special place in my heart and in my memories. My father was a mail carrier – for over 35 years! My mother also worked at the post office in a temporary job sorting an influx of cigarette lighters that RJ Reynolds Tobacco Company was distributing through the mail in the late 1950s. That job transitioned into her being the second full time female postal employee in the Winston-Salem post offices.
