The Evergreen and Conifer post offices are playing musical chairs with their postmasters.

When Evergreen postmaster Sid Henderson left to become postmaster in Parker, Lisa Mantey left the Conifer postmaster position to become the temporary Evergreen postmaster, known as the officer in charge.

Trudy Finan, who has been Eagle’s postmaster, is filling in as Conifer’s officer in charge while Mantey is at the Evergreen post office.

Mantey said Evergreen’s new permanent postmaster is expected to be appointed by the end of July. If Mantey gets the job, it would be a promotion for her.

The postmaster pecking order is determined by the number of deliveries that are made from a particular post office. Evergreen delivers to more addresses than Conifer.
