Kimberly Dunster walked nearly 10 miles a day for three decades, and now she’s hanging up her shoes – and her mail satchel.

Kim Dunster retired recently after 33 years with the U.S. Postal Service.

Dunster has worked for the U.S. Postal Service in the village of Granville for 27 years, after serving for six years as a clerk in Comstock.
The transition from working behind a desk for six years to delivering mail to half of the village was a nerve-wracking one, Dunster said.
“I was a little nervous,” she said of when former Granville Postmaster Roger Curtis offered her the letter carrier job. “I didn’t know if I’d be able to walk 10 miles a day.”
She added: “I think every carrier, when they first start, is overwhelmed, but after a couple of weeks, you get in the groove.”
