From Elisabeth Ptak "Just a week ago, I mentioned on Facebook that I was concerned that staff at the Point Reyes Station and Inverness post offices were working behind jury-rigged plastic sheets for coronavirus protection at their customer counters. Headed by Suzanne d'Coney, an ad hoc group of townspeople decided to do something about it. We consulted with the Inverness and Point Reyes Station postmistresses as well as the buildings’ owners to find a solution. On Wednesday, a polycarbonate shield was installed in Inverness, and on Thursday, one will be installed in Point Reyes Station. Each one was designed and fabricated to suit the sites’ individual needs and to provide a greater degree of protection for both postal staff and customers. Special thanks go to Suzanne d'Coney, Marshall Livingston, and Carol Friedman!
Some folks mentioned that they would like to help, so we're appealing to the community to help cover the cost of materials and labor, estimated to be about $1500. Any amount is welcome. You can send checks payable to Carol Friedman to Box 644, Point Reyes Station 94956. Contributions can also be made online via Venmo to: @SuzanneDconey; or via PayPal to: email@example.com.
Contributions in excess of the amount needed will be donated to West Marin Community Services for its ongoing efforts to assist those impacted by the pandemic."
