New Kansas Stamp Unveiled

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) -- Kansas celebrates 150 years of statehood Saturday, but already Thursday celebrations were underway.

A special postal stamp commemorating the milestone was dedicated during a ceremony at the Kansas Historical Society Thursday morning.

Governor Brownback was on hand to unveil a large replica of the stamp. It features an old metal windmill in the foreground with modern wind turbines in the background.

Designers say the images represent the forward moving nature of the Kansas economy.

You can buy the new stamps at area post offices or online at www.usps.com.
