It’s usually the U.S. Postal Service workers who do the delivering – but today, the tables were turned as Liz Latham delivered pizza and a musical mini-flash mob singing words of gratitude to workers at the West Seattle Junction Post Office:
She shared word of her plan this morning; at noontime, we went to the Post Office to see what happened. And there was Liz – pizzas, singers, and all!
She wanted to credit fellow West Seattleite and former Mayor Greg Nickels for inspiration, after he posted a public “thank you” to postal workers via Facebook, for their work “delivering those last, last-minute gifts right through Christmas Eve.” (He told Liz he’d pitch in to help cover the pizza cost, too.) And there’s no question they’ve been busy; USPS spokesperson is quoted in this national story as saying that volume was up 19 percent this holiday season over last year.
