Post office experience shows goodwill | Letters


As a white-haired senior of Oak Harbor, I experienced true Christmas spirit while standing in line holding wrapped packages to mail at the post office.

First, a young woman took my packages and moved them along the table to where I could stand and wait to be helped.

When I remembered I had another package in the car, she watched over them, and then carried them up to the polite and attentive post office employee.

What a pleasant experience, in spite of the long line and wait. Yes, there is peace on earth and good will toward men in Oak Harbor.

Merry Christmas to all!
