Kingston to Washington

The proposed consolidation of rural delivery service affecting Deford, Kingston, and Clifford Post Offices recently suggested by the Post Office Department led to a meeting last week between Post Office officials in Washington and Kingston area residents.

William Drillock, Marlette, John Burn, Kingston Village President, Tom Grissman, Jim Harvey, Orrie Reimann, and Jack Wesch. Were photographed on the steps of the Capital Building.

The Kingston group met with W. Carson Browning Staff Assistant to the Deputy Assistant Post Master General seeking a delay in the proposed consolidation. Under the pending plan it was decided to consolidate the one rural route at Deford with the two routes at Kingston and the one at Clifford.
