As the Postmaster of Orange, I am writing to express the unwavering commitment of our postal staff to serving our wonderful community. With the Fourth of July approaching, a time when we celebrate our nation’s independence and the freedoms we cherish, it is also a fitting moment to reflect on the values that bind us together.

The Postal Service has been an integral part of American life for centuries, connecting people across vast distances, facilitating communication and commerce. Here in Orange, my team and I take immense pride in continuing this tradition. Our dedication goes beyond simply delivering mail and packages; it extends to being a reliable and supportive presence in our community.

Every day, our staff works diligently to ensure that your letters, packages, and essential communications reach their destinations promptly and securely. We understand that the trust you place in us is vital, and we strive to uphold that trust through our hard work and dedication.

As we celebrate Independence Day, let us also celebrate the spirit of community and the importance of staying connected. The 4th of July is a reminder of the strength and resilience that define our nation. It is these same qualities that our postal employees embody each day as they serve you.

We are honored to be a part of this community and to contribute to its well-being. On behalf of the entire postal staff, I wish you all a joyful and safe 4th of July. Let us come together to celebrate not only our nation’s independence but also the unity and dedication that make Orange a special place to live.

Thank you for your continued trust and support.

Symiah Franklin
