The Pembroke Post Office will be celebrating their 175th Anniversary on November 20, 2015.   This is the date that the Post Office Department first recognized Pembroke as a Community by appointing a Postmaster and authorizing a Post Office in the yet to be formed town.

The Post Office is not allowed to host an event that will require us to collect money or donations.

We are asking that the whole town help us celebrate this year through several events located in the Pembroke area to showcase what our town has to offer.  Some of the events that we have asked for is for a Tournament or Golfing at Castle Rock, a 5K Run(to be hosted by Boy Scout Troop 460) to kick off the Pembroke Heritage Festival and a dance at the Pembroke Fire Recreation Center.  Any person or organization that would want to organize these events can keep any proceeds that come from it.  We have also asked for a banner to be erected to make everyone aware of this milestone.  If anyone wants to host an event in commemoration of this Anniversary – please let us know.  The Post Office is planning a party on Friday, November 20 at 1 pm.   We are inviting a few VIPs and encouraging all former Pembroke Post Office employees to attend.  We also want the entire town to come out to help us celebrate with our 175” cake!  We also need a few volunteers to help us assemble the cake and other refreshments.  Contact Elaine Cook at 540-626-7211.
