Dr. Mary Walker, a native of the Town of Oswego, was honored in Seneca Falls on October 7th. “I received a call from Postmaster Mary Charney asking if we would be interested in a stamp cancellation honoring this historic event,” said a member of the town’s Historical Society. Historical Society Members, Diana Gordon, Nancy Ravas and Thelma Johnson got together to fine tune the selection.
Town resident and local artist Diana Gordon designed the final selection for the stamp cancellation. Her son Aaron Gordon of Freelance Graphic Design was instrumental in the design of the post card. “I already have orders for the stamp and postcards and we hope to sell out.” stated President Cooper.
Postmaster Charney also assisted by providing names and phone numbers of stamp retailers to obtain original Dr. Mary Walker stamps which were issued in 1982. A limited number of these stamps will also be for sale at this event.
