LaVernia Peters, postmaster at Formeso, is r6ady to cancel a'letter using the special cancellation designed to celebrate the completion of the new fire hall Formoso office gets special cancellation Friday the Formoso Post Office was stamping a special pictorial cancella- tion in honor of the new Formoso Fire Hall recently completed. A cancella- tion motif showing a fire truck design was used Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. This cancellation was the idea of the postmaster LaVernia Peters, who has served the Formoso post office as postmaster since 1993. The local fire department chose the design used for the cancellation. Peters said she was busy all day as letters came in to receive the cancella- tion. This is the second special pictorial cancellation for Formoso. One was issued Aug. 15, 2000, when the city water project was completed. The new fire hall was built in part with funds from the Kan-Step program and now serves the community as a fire station and community center. An open house will be held next month at the fire hall.
