The temperatures outside may have been frightful, but that couldn’t keep more than 50 delightful postal retirees from making their appointed rounds at the 3rd Annual Retirees’ Breakfast at the Topeka, KS, Main Post Office last month.
Current and retired employees relished the opportunity to renew old acquaintances and develop new friendships. The Breakfast is paid for each year by the local social and recreation committee, and donations from current employees.
“It’s a great way of keeping in touch with our retirees,” said Topeka Postmaster B. Steven Pinkerton. “They are a vital link to our past and represent a wealth of knowledge and experience that the Postal Service can draw from as it moves forward.”
"I left this building in December of 1976, and it is good to return and see how it has changed,” said Retiree Bill Miller. “It is still the Post Office, but the operation is a lot different.”
“Thanks for having us again!” said Retiree Jimmy Hinton. “It is good to have a chance to visit with everyone and walk the floor once again."
