Commemorative Postmark Celebrates
On Friday, Oct. 1, the Mitchell Post Office will team with Dakota Wesleyan University to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the university.
On that date, Postmaster Kate Aulner, DWU Class of ’71, will be at the McGovern Library on campus from noon-2 p.m. with a special commemorative postmark. Customers can have the collectible postmark applied to items bearing proper postage. The university will have souvenir postcards for sale in the bookstore.
Also as part of the celebration, the university will host the Opperman Lecture at 11 a.m., Oct. 1, followed by book signings at 11:45 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. in the library. Professor Emeritus James McLaird will speak about and sign the newly released “Dakota Wesleyan University Memory Book, 1885-2010.”
Commemorative postmarks make great collectibles. Can’t make it to DWU on Oct.1? The postmark is also available for 30 days after by mail. To request by mail, affix First-Class postage to an envelope or postcard of your choice, using any stamps that were issued before Oct. 1. Place in a larger envelope (along with a large self-addressed stamped envelope for the return trip) and send to:
