Like other communities in the path of this week’s total solar eclipse, the village of Sycamore, OH — population 800 — took steps to make the most of their moment out of the sun.

Residents welcomed eclipse enthusiasts from out of town, including some who arrived in Sycamore a week early to ensure they had a good view of the rare celestial occurrence.

At the Sycamore Post Office, Postmaster Nicole Goist erected a temporary eclipse “selfie wall” and offered a special pictorial postmark for customers who wanted a mailable memento.

The postmark — designed by Erin Sherwood, a Sycamore retail associate — featured an outline of Ohio, with the eclipse path shaded and a star marking Sycamore’s location in the northwestern part of the state.

“I’m always designing stuff so doing it was a natural thing,” Sherwood said. “I’ve always been a crafty person.”

School’s in

A USPS employee represented the organization during a recent event in Raleigh, NC, for professors and students from historically Black colleges and universities.

Lauren Banks, a marketing specialist, encouraged professors to include direct mail in their curriculums and urged students to consider the Postal Service as a prospective employer.

“As a marketing specialist for USPS, I look forward to continuing to find new ways to elevate the value of mail for customers,” Banks said.
