Oakland Postmaster Dean Mongold retires
Dean Mongold’s recent retirement celebration included many faces from his past. The Oakland postmaster has decided it’s time to retire from the U.S. Postal Service, and the town of Oakland held a party for him at the Oakland Meeting Hall adjacent to the post office.
Current and former postmasters from Groveland, Winter Garden, Windermere and Oakland were there for Mongold’s sendoff. He was presented a gold clock, among other congratulatory items.
Town Manager Dennis Foltz said of Mongold: “You are a real icon in this town. … It will never be the same without you.”
