From David Haggstrom
This year will be the 25th annual offering of the Angel Station cancellation at the Angelica Post Office. The ceremonial debut of the Booster Citizens-sponsored postmark (design as always by Pat Kaake) is Friday, December 3.
Greeting cards may be mailed to the office or dropped off prior to Dec. 3, addressed appropriately and intended for mailing on that date. Please separate in-town and out-of-town mail. Postal employees will be in the lobby to hand-cancel pieces brought in by customers that day.
In addition, the Post Office will accept all mail to be postmarked with the Angel cancellation from Dec. 3 through Friday, December 24. Window hours are (M-F) 8:30-1l:30 a.m. and 12:30-3:30 p.m.; (Sat) 10 a.m.-12 Noon.
All mail requesting the Angel Station postmark that is received after Dec. 24 will be for collectors only, for 30 days. Please provide a return stamped envelope or your postmarked item w/stamp will be sent through the normal mail stream. For more information please contact the Angelica Post Office at 585-466-7869.
As noted this is the 25th anniversary of the Angel cancellation. The final count for the 2020 postmark was 10,001, a new record number!
