Black History Month, observed each February, is a time to celebrate the heritage of African-Americans and their contributions to the nation. This year, Miami Maintenance Support Clerk Linda Patrick invited the Postal Service to the Rock Road Restoration Historical Group, Inc. to praise those entrepreneurs who helped to build the area in Pompano-Pompano Beach, west of the Florida East Coast Railroad (FECR).
During the ceremony, Pompano Manager, Customer Service Operations Frank Mariano and Coral Springs A/Manager, Customer Services Richard Elam dedicated a stamp enlargement of Richard Allen, founder of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, to the Rock Road Restoration Historical Group, Inc. Smaller enlargements were presented to the entrepreneurs.
