ST. ALBANS, Maine (NEWS CENTER) --- Many people with ties to St. Albans have been taking advantage of one way to 'mark' the town's 200th birthday.

For four days the post office in St. Albans has been using a special cancellation postmark. The mark goes on a piece of mail to show that's its stamp has been used.

The special commemorative postmark was designed using the newly unveiled seal for St. Albans. It features the town's lake, dam and mountains --- all with the year 1813, which is when St. Alban's was first founded.

Town officials say they took a number of submissions for the seal's design. Eventually they choose the work of resident Nekisha Rowe.

The special postmark first became available to the public on June 14th, which is St. Albans official birthday. Postal workers say you can send them a self addressed stamped envelope for the next 30 days if you would like to have the seal as a keepsake.

Simply send your stamped piece of mail to:

Postmaster, 27 Main Street, St. Albans, ME 04971.
