Retiring Mail Carrier Honored With Decorated Mailboxes

The Explore Baltimore County website reports, "About a dozen residents stood along the 200 block of Edridge Way Friday morning, their mailboxes decorated in honor of the man who has delivered their mail at 10:30 a.m. sharp for more than three decades."

Reporter Dudley Bradburn, 62, would retire once he completed the route the Baltimore Highlands native began covering 31 years ago, long before many of the residents of the street off Edmondson Avenue had moved in."

Conlin goes on to write, "Mary Van Wyngaarden, who has lived on the 200 block of Edridge Way for 27 years, recalled that her daughter, now 30 years old, would wait in a rocking chair for Bradburn to come and give her a lollipop when she was younger."
