Editor, The Messenger,

I want to thank those people that come forward to save the Millfield Post Office from closure. With the new lease, we will get closer to the goal of 200 years.

The Millfield Post Office began in December of 1827. The first Postmaster was John Pugsley. As former Postmaster of Millfield, I would like to see the 200th anniversary come to pass as the small communities along the Sunday Creek Valley get smaller and smaller due to the closure of industry.

As stores, grocery, filling stations and post offices close, our small communities are slowly dying. By saving Millfield Post Office, I’m hoping that a small spark is ignited that gets the flames going agin to revive our small towns. We have water and land available, good roads and people to fill jobs if they become available.

Let’s fan the spark to bring back prosperity to the area.
