Hamburg, NY (WBEN) Today at the Erie County Fair you have a chance to get a special cancellation to mark the fair's 175th anniversary.
Outside the Historical building, a special Erie County Fair postal station will be on hand to mark envelopes for collectors. "Last year, we were approached by the fair people and they were looking for a unique way to commemorate the event, and they created the special cancellation design," says Karen Mazuriewicz of the US Postal Service. There's also a vintage postcard the fair will distribute and stamps for people to buy.
Those who can't be there today can go the Hamburg Post Office on Camp Road to get the special cancellation processed for the next 30 days.
