Something special. USPS recently held special dedications for two stamps.
Miami Postmaster Enrique Suarez dedicated the Year of the Rooster stamp at Miami-Dade College. Other speakers included Peter Liu, president of the Chinese Cultural Foundation, a nonprofit group that promotes American-Chinese cultural exchanges.
Meanwhile, the Love Skywriting stamp was dedicated during a ceremony on Collin College’s Plano, TX, campus. The event was part of the college’s “Letter as Art in the Digital Age” exhibition.
