Rural Carrier retires from Post Office at 85

After driving an 84-mile daily route delivering mail for the United States Postal Service (USPS), Soledad resident Elmer Canevascini retired at the age of 85. Monday was officially his last day but his friends and family gathered at the Soledad Post Office on Friday and held a small retirement party.

“He will be hard to replace,” said Trish LaMacchia of the USPS. “He was one of our best employees, it will take two people to replace Elmer.”
