“Pony Express” Returns to Douglas
Written by Mac Morey on December 9, 2020
The holiday gifts and well wishes won’t be going through UPS or FedEx this year in and around Douglas as they revert back to the older days of mail being delivered on horse back.
December 5th was the first day it began with Captain Bill Sinnard leading 12 other volunteers from Orin over to Glendo.
Another group of cowboys and cowgirls will be heading out on December 12th form Laramie to Guernsey. The group will be led by rider Stephanie Goulart so the letters can be postmarked.
The tradition is a salute to the Pony Express which carried mail form Missouri to California for 1860 and 1861.
