Dan Lind retires as Rib Lake postmaster

Since 1986 Dan Lind has served as postmaster in Rib Lake. Tuesday was his last day.

Lind started working for the US Postal Service in Phillips in 1980. In 1983 he became the postmaster in Brantwood where he served until coming back home to Rib Lake.

In his nearly three decades as postmaster in Rib Lake Lind has been active in the community. He and his wife Jean raised four children in the community. They have been involved in school and community sports. Lind said he will miss the daily conversations he has had with customers at the post office about sports and other topics and the many friends he has made over the years.

For Lind, the biggest change over the years has been the increased automation in the mail. He recalls the days when every morning and evening they would sort the mail. Now almost all the sorting is automated at centers and it arrives at the post office ready to deliver. With more changes on the horizon Lind felt it was time to step down and enjoy his retirement. “We might even get the camper out of the storage shed where it has been all season,” Lind said of his future plans.

Those plans include spending more time with his children and grandchildren. The Linds have four children. Two who live in the Twin Cities area and two live in the Green Bay and Fox Valley area. Rib Lake is conveniently between the two making the visits easier.
