Georgetown, Guyana – Tuesday, December 31, 2019

Seven past employees of the Guyana Post Office Corporation (GPOC) were celebrated in a simple ceremony at the Boardroom of the Corporation on Monday, December 30, 2019. The Chairman along with the Board of Directors took the opportunity to salute the former staff for their years of service to the corporation. In his remarks to the gathering, Reverend Dr. M. R. Massiah noted that “the Corporation must give credence to their efforts and recognize that we are standing today upon their shoulders, because of the foundation they have laid.”

The retirees were also presented with tokens of appreciation. In expressing their gratitude, Abdul Hassan, retired Deputy Postmaster General encouraged the Corporation to call upon them whenever they can be of service, “though I am home, I am still part of the Post Office, I still remember the Post Office.”

Clifton Moore shared that his best times have been while servicing at the Post Office and his gratitude for the gesture of the Board of Directors and Management, “It is mostly because of all of the officers that are here with me and some who are not here. And the only reason that is so is because the Post Office has people with integrity.”

Jacqueline Walcott who retired as Chief Postmaster said she found her service to the Post Office a pleasure despite the challenges and struggles she faced. She added that she is especially grateful for the exposure and opportunities presented, “I was able to see people from all walks of life and that caused me to see life in a very different and more meaningful way.”

Retired Postmaster General Edward Noble, Noel Phillips, Henry Dundas and retired Assistant Postmaster General Leslie Camacho were also invited to be a part of the ceremony. Edward Noble took the opportunity to share some fond memories of the origin of the Corporation and his involvement. “All my life I lived at the Post Office because my father was a Postmaster, so I do appreciate the effort the people put in at the Post Office. But more so, the Post Office was responsible for not only the economic development of the people but for the country.”

The retirees honoured are Abdul Hassan, Jacqueline Walcott, Mohamed Ishak, Clifton Moore, Balkaran Kissoon, Janice Wilburg and Robert Brian Adams.
