Florida NAPUS Postmasters, Retirees, and Associate Members,

              The Florida NAPUS Executive Board has voted to offer a stipend of $300.for Florida NAPUS members who make visits to The Hill during the National Legislative Conference, March 14-18, 2015. The board members who already receive reimbursment for expenses are excluded from the stipend. This will help to defray your expenses for lodging and travel.

              There will be a lot of information shared by the NAPUS National Office on the proposed merger with National League of Postmasters & possible upcoming postal related legislation. Congress did not pass any postal legislation before the end of 2014 which makes it highly likely the newly seated Congress will this year. This makes going to Washington D.C. more important than ever to speak to our Senators and Representatives on issues that affect us and encourage them to pass overdue legislation. It isnt important that you knowyour Congressman, but that your Congressman KNOWS YOU.

            If you plan to attend, please email me your name, phone number and title so that I can add you to my list as I began to make appointments with the Congressman. If you have any questions on visiting your Congressman or attending the 2015 Legislative Conference please contact me and check back here for updates and the latest information. We will visit in small groups, so dont fear having to visit a Congressional office alone.

              This year is also election year for FL NAPUS and there will be training sessions for all officer positions that you can sit in on to see if you might want to seek an office.

WHAT AN EVENT! by Barbara Whidden
Florida NAPUS Retirees sincerely thank all (110) who joined us Saturday for our annual reunion and steakout. . . .

Congratulations to Andy Davis, Postmaster-Anthony, on receiving a "Quilt of Valor" for his service to Afghanistan last year. It was sewn by our own FL Retiree Linda Columbe, Postmaster, Tavares.

If you weren't able to make it, we look forward to seeing you with us next year. . . .Probably the Holiday weekend in January. . . ."Aspiring retirees" are today's Postmasters who look forward to being retired one day, so you are always welcome. Also some of our "winter cousins", Postmasters and retirees from other states that winter in Florida, joined us from 11 states. . . .Lee Roy and I were truly blessed to host this gathering. . . .

Special thanks to National Retiree President Ann McDorman and NAPUS National President Tony Leonardi, who joined us and spent over a hour talking seperately with the active Postmasters in attendance. . . .

To Those that couldn't make it, we missed you. Mark you calendars now for 2016. . . .
