WASHINGTON, D.C. — There’s a new Luca postmaster with the U. S. Postal Service.

On Jan. 18, Ayer Postmaster Gary Luca held the Holy Bible, while the United States Postal Service Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe administered the oath of office for Clinton’s new Postmaster – Pam Luca.

The husband and wife team, who reside in Ayer, took the self-funded trip to Washington, D.C. earlier this month for the installation ceremony.

Pam Luca learned a valuable lesson from her dad many years ago and that sage advice was, “if you want something, it does not hurt to ask.”

Luca asked if she could be personally installed by Donahoe. The answer was “yes.” Pam Luca becomes the first Postmaster in the country to be installed by Donahoe, who is the 73rd Postmaster General of the United States.

In addition to the formal ceremony, Pam and Gary Luca were given a personal tour of Postal Headquarters located at L’Enfant Plaza right in the middle of our nation’s capital.

The husband and wife Postmaster team were joined by Donahoe, Assistant Postmaster General Ron Stroman and CEO Megan Brennan for lunch, where the group spent an hour discussing the current situation and challenges facing the Postal Service.

Pam, who recently was recognized for her 25 years with the Postal Service, called the day “phenomenal.”
