David Mastroianni Jr., USPS District Manager CT Valley presented Saburu Usami & Art Gerckens of Sacred Heart with Appreciation Award

Mr. Usami has supported  the PCCs by allowing Art Gerckens the time and resources to attend meetings and events both locally and in other states.  Mr. Usami allows the PCCs to host their Annual Spring Seminar at Sacred Heart University for the past13 years.  He also allows Art to donate / provide printing services for PCC events, and he covered the costs for food at the last 2 Spring Events so that the FCCPCC was able to keep the proceeds from those events. Sacred Heart has many times paid for Arts air travel and per diem so that he could attend NPF and other PCC events at HQ.

If you thought Westport’s favorite son, the late actor and philanthropist Paul Newman, was just another celebrity think again. Along with Academy Award nominations and movie box office success, Newman also managed to raise more than $450 million for charity through his legacy foundation.

In recognition of Newman’s cultural and philanthropic contributions, the U.S. Postal Service on Wednesday honored Newman with a commemorative stamp, which was formally unveiled at the new Newman’s Own headquarters.

“Giving to others was his life’s work and for that the U.S. Postal Service has honored him,” said Kevin Hogan, Westport’s postmaster.

More than 150 people crowded into the Morningside Drive headquarters to see the official unveiling and to get a companion, limited-edition pictorial postmark designed by Westport artist Miggs Burroughs. That postmark will be available at the downtown post office for the next 60 days.

“He was a great man who saw the need and wanted to provide,” said David Mastroianni, district manager Connecticut Valley, United States Postal Service.

A proclamation was read from Gov. Dannel Malloy declaring Oct. 14 Paul Newman Day in the state of Connecticut. Likewise, First Selectman Jim Marpe read a similar proclamation designating the same day for local recognition.

“It’s almost impossible to describe in terms of how proud we are,” Marpe said of Newman.

“We as Westporters are so proud and so thrilled by the commitment of the Newman organization,”
