DIABLO'S CITIZEN OF THE YEAR 2021
Since 1971, the DPOA has been recognizing residents who do exceptional work in our community by honoring them as Citizen of the Year. Jan Novak conceived of and led the program to tell the stories of our long time residents via “Diablo Honors”. She has led the effort to improve the pandemic inspired lending library, deliver warm welcomes to new residents, recruit volunteers, and always thinks creatively about ways to improve the DPOA. Thank you, Jan, for making our community a special place.

Walter Lucas, our resident post master, presented the DPOA with a certificate of commendation and recognition to show USPS appreciation for the DPOA's support of this historical post office through holiday decor and historical preservation.
September, is "Diablo Post Office Appreciation Week"! Starting the 28th we are showing gratitude to this historic and community Post Office and all of it's wonderful employees, our UPS and FedEx drivers!
It's always a joy to see Teresa, Walter & Stephanie...and an extra thank you to all of them especially in this COVID time!
Thank you as well to:
