There are so many great things about today’s digital world, but do you know one of Paco’s non-digital favorites? MAIL. A nice note in the mail is a wonderful thing. An invitation to an event, a letter from an old friend, or a postcard!! Paco really appreciates the mail service. Did you know the US Postal Service has been around since 1775? That is when Benjamin Franklin became the first postmaster general. Mail delivery in the United States has continued since then. Amazing, isn’t it?
To help you say thanks to all of your favorite postal workers, Paco created some simple and fun Thank You cards for you to print, color, write, and share! What a great way to show your support for this amazing American service. You can use the note cards to say thank you to anyone you’re grateful for too! Just download the file below to begin.
