Mr. Rogers fans will be excited to see the US Postal Service honor him soon on Forever Stamps. They will dedicate the new stamp on Friday, March 23.
Fred Rogers, born 1928 became the beloved television neighbor to generations of children. His groundbreaking public television series “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” inspired and educated young viewers with warmth, sensitivity and honesty.
Mr. Rogers Neighborhood show was distributed nationally in 1968 by the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS). Mr. Rogers would walk in singing “Won’t you Be My Neighbor”, put on his trademark cardigan and change into sneakers to begin each show.
Rogers died in 2003. The stamps will help continue his legacy.
