Sending love from the Valentines Post Office

The Valentines Post Office is always very busy this time of year. The boys and girls in Ms. Escobar’s class from Totaro Elementary School visited on Tuesday, Feb. 11 and posed for a picture before having their cards received that special postmark. Annette Glasscock talked with the children and shared a little about the history of the post office. Before the children arrived she said on Saturday, Feb. 8 the parking lot was filled with members from a motorcycle club and a Corvette club. The post office is located at 23 Manning Drive, Valentines, Virginia, 23887. The phone number is (434) 577-2456. The hours are 8 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. Monday through Friday, closed for lunch from 1 to 1:30 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. Make plans to visit the post office, you will be glad you did. It’s like stepping back in time, in a good way. Do you remember Postmaster Willie Wright? (Sylvia Allen/Brunswick Times-Gazette)
