Last week, Link reported on the Stamp Out Hunger food drive.

The annual drive that allows Postal Service employees to collect food donations for their communities, was held May 11.

We also reminded you of the rules for promoting semipostal stamps, as well as instructions on ordering semipostal-themed T-shirts, and we previewed several forthcoming events, including a virtual job fair for supervisory positions, slated for Sunday, May 19, and a virtual seminar on the Postal Service Health Benefits Program, scheduled for Tuesday, May 21.

Our “Heroes” column turned a spotlight on Danny Lara Jr., a Waterford, CA, rural carrier who came to the rescue of a 91-year-old customer who was discovered unconscious and later treated for an infection.

Additionally, we covered the May 15 dedication ceremony for the Ansel Adams stamps.

The ceremony took place at Yosemite National Park in California, a place that inspired many of the artist’s photos.

Daniel Tangherlini, a USPS Board of Governors member who spoke at the ceremony, reflected on the enduring Adams legacy.

“He felt deeply about the need to conserve our natural heritage — and through his talent, he made others care about this cause, too,” Tangherlini said.
