After more than 23 years with the U.S. Postal Service, Concord Post Master Evelyn Thompson has announced her retirement. A celebration in her honor will be held at 10 a.m. Friday, July 30 and everyone is invited to stop by and wish her well in her retirement. She plans to spend more time with her husband Marcus Thompson, her daughters Porsha Thompson and Jasmine Brown and enjoy baking in her kitchen. ’She’s not just a Post Master who tells people to do the work. She is a hard worker herself and she looks out for her carriers and clerks. She loves her community and she loves cooking and baking cakes and bringing food for her friends at work. Everyone in the community knows her really well and she’s a minister at her church, Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church. She plans to spend more time with her husband and do a lot of baking.’Evelyn started off in Thomaston and supervised at Peachtree City for a short time before serving the rest of her 23-year career in Concord. Jessica Bennett has worked with her since 2017. ’She and my dad grew up together and she encouraged me to work here at the post office. She’s a very hard working, very personable person. She loves everybody and is always doing something sweet for someone,’ she said.
