Texas Rural Carrier spruces up Post Office grounds

Share via

For more than a year, Rural Carrier Darla Kelsey devoted her personal time and expertise to single-handedly making the Belton, TX, Post Office a little more beautiful.

She took the initiative to brighten the landscape for the premises, including designing new garden areas and doing the spadework.

“I do it because I like it. I like to see the flowers,” said Kelsey, who views the project as a form of public service. “People will actually … stop, look and admire.”

Her efforts were the subject of a recent feature story in the Belton Journal newspaper, which praised the Post Office’s “stunning display of flower beds and gorgeous landscaping.”

Postmaster Anthony Palomino also is a fan.

“We sure do appreciate her and all the hard work she has done to make it look so beautiful,” he said.
