Bourbon Post Office clerk headed into retirement

BOURBON — Karen Worsham will no longer be serving customers of the Bourbon Post Office.

Worsham decided to retire after 28 years on the job. Today, July 31 is her last day. She started out as a mail carrier delivering throughout the town. The first 12 years of service were spent going door to door and helping as a mail clerk.

“Over the past 28 years there have been hundreds of changes that have happened. Sometimes it has been hard to keep up with all the changes but it has been a been a very good job,” said Worsham. “I am so very grateful to have had this job and be in the position to be able to help people when they need assistance.”

The smiling faces and the ability to help others will be what Worsham said she will miss the most. Although she plans to visit her friends at the post office it won’t be quite the same without her there.
“One thing is for sure she’s really going to be missed by all of us here and the customers,” said McKinley.
