By Betty Dahms , Reinbeck Courier

Pam Anderson, postmaster of the Reinbeck post office since September 21, 2013 is set to retire, July 31, 2019, to be her last day.

Pam began her career at the USPS in January 2004. She started part time as a relief postmaster in Steamboat Rock working on Saturdays and whenever the postmaster went on vacation. During this time she continued to work at the Department of Human Services working with the elderly.

Anderson worked at the Lincoln post office in 2005 as the officer in charge while continuing to work in Steam Boat Rock, working up to 30 plus hours a week.

When she came to work at the Reinbeck post office, the one thing she didn’t like were the cold gray cabinets. So as you can see, she added her own touch, by displaying some photos of her favorite bird, the cardinal. Some of which were given to her by customers or as Pam sees it, those people are more than customers, they are friends.

In June of 2010, Anderson began working at the Holland post office, where the postmaster had retired, after she found a replacement for the Lincoln office.

Anderson began working in Reinbeck on May 7, 2011. This is when the Reinbeck and Grundy Center post offices first changed their hours. She worked in Holland from 7:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and Reinbeck noon to 4:30 p.m.

February 2013 the Reinbeck office again changed hours and Pam began working only in Reinbeck six hours a day. Anderson applied for the full time postmaster position in July and was hired with this title in September.

Pam said the best part of her job as postmaster in the communities she served "are the customers. Working in all these different communities I have made many true friends that I will have forever, for this I am truly grateful. It has been a tremendous pleasure working as postmaster, thank you to all the communities and their citizens".

Anderson has no plans for retirement for now, she said, "I am looking forward to a little R & R at home". Pam has three sons and six grandchildren.

An open house is planned for Pam Anderson on Sunday, July 28, 2019, from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Reinbeck Methodist Church.
