Donnelly Post Master Janet Nordstrom presents Bud Anderson with the Rural Carrier of the Month Award. A reception was held Wednesday at the Donnelly Post Office to honor Anderson, who was also celebrating his birthday. Anderson received the award for themonth of May 2008 in the Northland District, which includes more than 160 communities in Minnesota and the western part of Wisconsin. The award is given monthly by the Quality of Work Life Employee Involvement recognition team. He is now eligible to be chosen for the Rural Carrier of the Year. Nordstrom nominated Anderson in May after he quite possibly saved the life of one of his customers. When delivering Marcella Recker's mail, Anderson noticed that she had not yet picked up the mail from the previous day. He notified her family who found her very ill and unable to move. She was immediately hospitalized for a few days and recovered from servere dehydration. Anderson is thankful that Recker was able to be on hand for the recognition.
