This Post Office is one of the most helpful I have ever seen. They are friendly and courteous. If you need special help they work to be sure that you get the service you need. I like the old building. A touch of yesteryear. They do a good job for those they serve.

This Post Office has been here for many years, so many years that back when it was built, there was no consideration for the handicap or elderly. The steps going into the facility can be dangerous or even impossible to manage for some. I'm still not sure how a Government building can keep from meeting the requirements that private business must meet in being handicapped accessible?? With that said, since there is no ramp and the only way to get into this building is climbing those steps, I do know that the Postal workers inside try to accommodate those that can not get into the building. Back when I lived there, I don't guess I ever really noticed that the window was closed (for what seems like a long time in the afternoon), but after moving to the city, you realize that small town life has it's disadvantages. It seems everytime I am in town visiting family, I end up at the Post Office either just after the window has been closed or way before it is suppose to reopen. I realize they take a late lunch so that they are "open" during the normal lunch hour, but I don't understand why they don't "split" the lunch shift up, so that the window could remain open all day, like at one of the banks?? Anyway, with that said, I do tip my hat to the staff, a while back my Dad had told me that the lights in front of the Post Office weren't coming on (back during the winter when it gets dark much earlier in the evening) and that made climbing those steps even harder. I called and talked to the acting Post Master, she wasn't sure and went to check, she couldn't find a way to check them since they were on a timer, but promised me that she would check them that evening. I know she either stayed late or drove back by that evening and she got both of the lights fixed the next day. I also discussed some options for him as far as the "steps" out front and she was more than accommodating in offering several solutions for him. I've never had a problem picking up items that were too big for Dad's box, or getting stamps or mailing something off at the window(when I do catch it open..LOL), they are always friendly and cordial. You just realize there are differences in small town living and being in the big city when you have done both...life indeed does move at a slower pace in small town America, so there are pros and cons!!
