Improvement Plans

Back in 1727, I founded the Junto Society, a group of 12 people from a variety of backgrounds: printers, surveyors, a cobbler, a cabinetmaker, and a merchant. We named the group Junto --the Spanish word for "assemblies"-- and met regularly on Friday nights for 40 years. We discussed what could be done to improve ourselves and our communities.

And boy did we! The Junto Society developed a library and established volunteer fire and police departments, as well as a public hospital. We even helped found the University of Pennsylvania.

How about you? Are you working to make your community better? What can you do to help make the Postal community better?
