New post office for Cameron residents

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - The saying is, "come rain, sleet, or shine, the United States Postal Service is there. Residents of Cameron say, you can add hurricane to that list. After hurricanes Gustav and Ike, the city of Cameron was left without a way to get their mail. But, not anymore, they celebrated the opening of a band new post office with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

"Words cannot describe what it means to the residents of Cameron Parish because, when the post office comes back that means that there is stability,"said Daisy Comeaux with the United States Postal Service. 

The employees at the newly opened post office are not wasting any time. They are already back in the office sorting the mail to be delivered this afternoon. But, Kirk Burliegh, with the Cameron Parish Police Jury said, it is not all about the mail.

"Now, the people look forward to coming back to the local post office to meet the people and shake the hands. They want to see how families are doing. And, it is really good to see the people come together as a community.

Long time Cameron resident, Linda Johnson told us, while picking up her mail, that is nice to, once again, have a local post office.

"I am happy for the postal system to be back in Cameron. I am a happy Cameron resident," said Linda Johnson. 

A feeling shared by all Cameron residents.
