KAMIAH — More than 100 patrons of Rural Route 2 out of Kamiah, Postmaster Richard Gibler and Mrs. Gibler and children in the area paid tribute Saturday to Henry Beckman, retired carrier who completed 36 ½ years of service Oct. 1.

The surprise party was held in the Big Butte Community Hall in the heart of Route 2. It was a surprise to Beckman.

He and his wife, who is now substituting on the route until a carrier can be hired for the job, were invited to Sunday supper at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Killmar of Winona, lifelong friends of the Beckmans. Instead of eating in the Killmar home, they were taken to Big Butte for the festivities.
