Feast for a postmaster

With the East Ellsworth U.S. Post Office scheduled to be closed, the time was right Thursday for East Enders not only to say good-bye to a popular gathering spot but also to its long-time postmaster, Myrna Olson.

Olson's friends and others gathered at the post office for party celebrating her 20 years as postmaster and the ending of the 54010 zip code.

Olson loves to bake, and over the years she's left plenty of goodies for patrons to enjoy.

On this day others did the baking for her. Refreshments included a big cake with a picture of the post office, brownies, cookies, appetizers and coffee.
