Delivering Your Mail

Whether on the back of a horse on a snowy day or on foot walking through town, Holly Horner tries to be outside as much as she can. That’s one of the reasons she chose to be a city carrier, delivering mail to homes and businesses in bustling downtown Ithaca. We accompanied Holly on her route one afternoon, from her right-seated postal truck. She told us all about the seasonal changes of mail traffic in a college town, the pitfalls of her job, and what skills she had to learn in order to do it right.
