Rhody celebrates 100 years posted on 01/31/2020

(MT) – It was a packed house at the Still Creek Inn on Saturday, Jan. 25 as the community celebrated the centennial anniversary of the Rhododendron Post Office. The crowd enjoyed a menu of speakers, covering the history of the community from the indigenous people through more recent events, including stories of postal deliveries in the harshest snows.

“The Rhododendron post office is thriving and it's because of this community and all of the support on the Mountain,” said Brenda Cauley Manley, the Welches Postmaster, at the event.

Dignitaries including the Clackamas County Commissioners and State Representative Anna Williams were on hand, with proclamations celebrating the event by the Commissioners, U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley and U.S. Representative Earl Blumenauer.

“For 100 years and counting, the Rhododendron Post Office has connected the Oregonians it serves with family, friends, and loved ones – both across Oregon and many miles away,” Merkley’s proclamation read, in part. “With every newspaper delivered and each product shipped, this office has been instrumental in keeping your community informed, helping local businesses access larger markets, and giving residents access to critical goods.”

A second celebration is also expected to take place on Saturday, Aug. 8, in concert with the annual Steiner Cabin Tour.
