Stamp of Approval

This Wednesday, October 13, everyone is invited to attend a special Ochiltree County pictorial postal stamp cancellation at the post office at 11 a.m.

At the event, Plains Trail Region Executive Director Deborah Sue McDonald and other representatives will speak. On Wednesday, you may purchase the special Ochiltree County postal stamp for $3, or you may bring your own envelope and receive it at no cost.

As part of the special stamp cancellation, this week Ochiltree will also be spotlighted as the county of the week on the Texas Plains Trail Region’s website.

Ochiltree County is one of 52 counties that are involved in the project, which stems from a partnership between the Texas Plains Trail Region (one of Texas Historical Commission’s 10 Heritage Trails) and the U.S. Post Office. Its purpose is to promote travel and heritage tourism by connecting points of regional pride, and it takes place at a different county seat each Wednesday this year.
