Postal carrier Diane Pless served the Clarkston area delivering mail for the past 27 years.

When she retired on Nov. 30, neighbors in the Green Acres subdivision in Clarkston invited her to stop by one last time, this time for cookies, cards, and gifts.

"This is bittersweet I'm going to miss you guys," she said.

Jo Vaara, who baked a plate of chocolate chip and oatmeal cookies, said she now has plenty of time for volunteering, and Pless agreed.
