Show the Love for Grand Junction Newspaper Carriers

Tomorrow, October 10, is International Newspaper Carrier Day. Have you ever been a paper carrier? If you have, then you know what a demanding job it can be. Show the love to your local paper carrier.

Being a paper carrier, or as we used to be called, paperboys and papergirls, is literally a seven-day-a-week job. There’s no such thing as a day off. Day or night, rain or shine, the papers must be delivered.

Back in the mid-1970’s, at the ripe old age of six, I began delivering papers on the route around 1st and Orchard in Grand Junction. In time, that route expanded to include the area all the way to KREX.

Please note the disctinction between this holiday which is observed on October 10, and Newspaper Carrier Day which is September 4.

To complicate matters further, President Reagan issued a proclamation making October 26 Newspaper Carrier Appreciation Day.

Take your pick of one of these three days and celebrate. Trust me, delivering the Daily Sentinel at 5:30 a.m. in the middle of winter is no walk on the beach. Throw your carrier a tip, or maybe pass along a pleasant note. Let your paper carrier know you appreciate what they do.
