  • -A Honesdale native who works as a rural carrier for the Lake Ariel Post Office has made it into the “Million Mile Club.” The milestone is reached for “30 years of safe driving without having a preventable incident.” Andrew “Andy” Box has reached this milestone and was surprised with a party to honor him Tuesday morning. He was surrounded by members of his family, including his wife, three kids, father, brother and sister-in-law, as well as his co-workers. Box received a plaque and a jacket for reaching the milestone. The jacket had the USPS logo and underneath it read “Safe Driver Million Mile Club.” Wayne County Commissioner Wendall Kay was also there to commemorate Box on his accomplishment and give him a certificate. “It's quite a milestone,” said Dan Rice, the Lake Ariel Post Office operations manager for Territory 5. “Andy has never had any accidents.” “This is great,” Box said. “It's really neat. I'm happy that I've never had an accident. There's something different every day and you really have to pay attention.” Box has been a rural carrier for “just over” 30 years. “They pulled it off well,” he said of the surprise party. “It was a real surprise.” Box thanked the postal service and everyone who was there to celebrate with him. “I'm very proud of him,” said Shelley Corey, postmaster. “I'm proud to be a postmaster and I'm proud of the employees. Since I'm retiring I'm going to miss everyone. They're a great group of employees. Andy is a superior employee.”
