Debbie Clarkston retires from post office after 32 years

Long-time Canada Post employee, Debbie Clarkston, retired on Sept. 28, after 32 years of managing Sooke’s snail mail.

Starting as a casual worker in 1979, Clarkson is now leaving her position as postmaster.

“It’s been an incredible journey,” Clarkston said.

“I just have to say, it’s been a privilege to have this position. This town is full of so many wonderful people.”

As for the future, Clarkston is going to “coast for a while,” and find her retirement feet.

She  is also a well-known local artist and chances are she will find time for more creativity.

Clarkston is pushed out of the office into retirement by co-worker Nancy Low.
