A potluck celebration was held on Friday for Keith Vickers, who was the Supervisor of Customer Service at the Taylorville Post Office as he retired following 32 ½ years. Vickers served as a letter carrier for 23 of those years, followed by the Supervisor position he held. He told Regional Radio News when he started in 1983; everything was done by hand, until automated machines were installed.
The automated machines were installed in the office around 1995. During that time, Internet usage started to increase. Vickers believes it has made a huge impact in many areas.
Looking back on his years of working at the Post Office, Vickers says he’s going to miss his co-workers and the usual banter they have in the mornings, and the customers.
Vickers says his plans are to do projects around the house, and travel to Atlanta, Georgia more often to visit his grandson.
