What a special tribute and memorable moment in Santa Barbara County history today. The U.S. Postal Service revealed its new Forever stamp honoring first responders. The official stamp dedication was held at the Montecito Fire Department. Local resident and celebrity Oprah Winfrey was the keynote speaker and we want to thank her for her heartfelt words.
