A post office icon will be no more … at least not here

mailBY MARCY SHORTUSE – It’s official, one of our favorite faces downtown is leaving us.


Sally Pentecost has been at the Boca Grande Post Office for more than 12 years, and knows by name just about everybody who has a home here.

On Friday, March 20, she will be heading up to work in the North Port Post Office.

“Charlie and I would like to thank you all for your love and support during the last 12-plus years,” Sally said. “We are eternally grateful! It has been more than six years since Charlie’s accident, and we will never forget all the kindnesses that this community showed us.”

Sally urges everyone to stop by and see her at her new location, which is the post office near the city center in North Port.

“You will forever be in our thoughts and prayers,” she said. “It has been my honor and privilege to have served you. I will miss you.”
