Little Blue Hen

Valley Water’s story of The Little Blue Hen was inspired by the traditional folk tale, “The Little Red Hen”, and tells the tale of the Little Blue Hen as she learns to conserve water every day. Presented in the style of a storybook with opportunities to join in, viewers will learn fun ways that they can conserve water in their homes every day, just like the Little Blue Hen!

History Happy Hour

Sending and receiving mail is something that many of us take for granted, until it is threatened.  Currently, the USPS is faced with a funding crisis but throughout its history, the Postal Service has faced many challenges as well as dangers.  The act of delivering mail was a very real threat.  

Watch our video on the Dangers of Delivery, then take our trivia quiz to test your USPS knowledge.  

When you are done, write a letter to someone in your life and mail it. Receiving personal mail can help  brighten someone’s day, support the USPS, and allow you time to reflect on life away from technology.
