Positive Note: NAPUS President Dale Goff and the Postal Service recognized NAPUS Postmaster Beverly Windbigler of Blocksburg, CA. 95514 for her actions of “Heroism” in helping a fellow patron of her local community. A young teenager crashed his motorcycle into a tree across the street from the Blocksburg Post Office badly injuring his head and body. After calling 911, Beverly stayed with and helped the young man until the emergency fire team arrived. Thank you, Beverly. Your dedication to your community as Postmaster is commendable.
As always, I am here to help you.
