Patrick Henrietta was born and lived on Lot. 6 Con 3 Drummond  was the rural mail carrier for R. R. #2 from Perth from 1920 to 1973. He was the only person in the Perth Postal area to have the same route for over 50 years and the last employee of Canada Post to work more than 50 years.

According to the history of Drummond Township a post office was opened in Henry Ireton’s store on the Perth- Innisville Road on June 1, 1890. Ireton held the position of postmaster until the post office closed on January 31, 1913.

Any recollections?
