 You can go back in time and be a part of history when you mail a letter that will be delivered by the Holbrook Hashknife Pony Express. Dozens of riders on horseback will deliver the mail from Holbrook to Scottsdale and then your letter will be delivered to the address you write on your envelope.

This is a fun literacy project for students, classrooms and families. Kids will learn to properly address an envelope and gain a little history about the Pony Express.

If you live near the Fountain Hills or Scottsdale Post Office, you can purchase a “Pony Express Mailer” for $1, insert your letter into this special envelope, address the envelope and write “Via Pony Express” in the bottom left hand corner. Then add a postage stamp and drop it into the Pony Express canister located at the Post Office.

You can also mail your letter from home. Place your letter in an envelope, address the envelope and write “Via Pony Express” in the bottom left hand corner, then add postage.

Put that letter into another envelope, add postage and send it to:

Postmaster

Holbrook, AZ 86025

 

Letters must be received by Jan. 27, 2023
