George P. Buonocore There are some exciting things going on at your local post office.

RMAC Festival

This weekend the Post Office will be attending the Rockaway Music and Arts fall festival like always, but this year they will have a little help from some superhero friends to commemorate our first series of DC Comic Stamps. What's even more exciting is that along with Brand new superhero and Disney matted prints, there will be a specially designed commemorative Cachet envelope created for the event along with a special cancellation for the days event. We will also be processing Passports, selling all kinds of interesting stamps, and even taking pictures with your favorite hero.
