wabaningoWabaningo was originally the name of an Michigan Indian chief. Today it is the name of small Michigan village located where White Lake flows into Lake Michigan. Originally the community was known as Sylvan Beach, receiving it’s post office way back in 1897.

Today it is at the end of the road that leads to the White Lake Lighthouse. Located adjacent to condos, cottages and the boats slips on White lake. It has endured the ravages of time and weather.

I had thought I should check and see it this quaint post office branch needs a new postmaster. I was interested till I heard the recent news that the post office was going to cut some 3200 smaller offices across the county.

I was reminded of that old saying, “Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays these courageous couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds”

Thanks to all our postal workers who bring our mail, no matter what the weather!
