Volunteers help save Rudolph postmark
Tue, 04 Dec 2012 08:14:39 GMT —
Close to 75 people, including a few retired postal workers, have signed up to stamp the special Reindeer Station postmark on the 80,000 letters and cards that come in from across the country into the village of Rudolph.
These letters flood the village post office every December, because they are stamped with a Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer postmark.
The tradition was in danger of ending when the post office staff was cut down to one employee, and the work became too much to handle.
That's when volunteers in the community decided to take over the job to keep the tradition alive.
"I struggled with it for a little bit, but then I just realized no matter what I wanted, it couldnâ??t be done by me alone," Officer in Charge Charlotte Lamb told the Inquistr.
