SIMI VALLEY POST OFFICE DEDICATION CEREMONY SCHEDULED
 OFFICE TO BE RENAMED AFTER LONG-TIME POSTMASTER


(WASHINGTON, DC) – The Simi Valley Post Office will soon be called the Neil Havens Post Office, after the dedication ceremony on August 5th. 

The new name will honor long-time Simi Valley Postmaster Charles Neil Havens, who served in his post for 30 years. Neil Havens passed away July 16, 2004.  Mayor Bob Huber proposed the name change nearly two years ago, and the process was completed after former Representative Howard “Buck” McKeon carried legislation and put the idea into action.  Now at long last, a ceremony will be held to honor Mr. Havens and celebrate his newly minted namesake. 

On the morning of Wednesday, August 5, community leaders including Mayor Huber and Congressman Steve Knight (CA-25) will offer remarks about the new designation for the Galena Avenue office, and commemorate the great service of one Mr. Charles Neil Havens.

“I’m very excited to pay homage to Mr. Havens, whose dedication to his family and community is nothing short of praiseworthy,” said Congressman Knight. 
 
"This recognition is extremely well deserved,” remarked Simi Valley Mayor Bob Huber.  “ Neil Havens was a pillar in Simi Valley for decades and as a volunteer he gave tirelessly of his time and talents to our citizens of all walks of life to make Simi Valley a better place to live." 

The Dedication and Renaming Ceremony will be open to the public, and all are encouraged to pay their respects. Details below:
