Postmaster Speaks at Rotary Club
by Bob Augustin Jr.
Rotarian Lori Cook, Lawrenceburg Postmaster, presented the program on the U.S. Postal Service at the May 30, 2008 meeting of the Lawrenceburg Rotary Club. Pam Davis, Supervisor of the Lawrenceburg Post Office, accompanied Cook and assisted in answering questions at the conclusion of the presentation.
Cook's career with the U.S. Postal Service began as a mail carrier in Ohio 21 years ago. She then moved the ranks to supervisor, regional analyst, and Postmaster. She moved to Lawrenceburg as Postmaster in 2007.
Cook presented a short video on the process involved in collecting, sorting, routing and delivering the mail. Next she informed the club that the Lawrenceburg Post Office employed a staff of thirty-five, runs 17 routes, ten city and seven rural,and handles 30,980 pieces of mail a day. She also stated that, although the Postal Service is part of the Federal Government, it is self-sufficent business and no longer is supported by tax dollars.
