Topanga Canyon’s postmaster, Mabel Christie, is finally retiring after many years of hard work.
Christie writes:

“I want to thank all the Patrons of Topanga Canyon for giving me the opportunity to serve the
community. Even though there [were] a lot of differences, when I changed the color of the Old

encouragement many of you have given me. Thanks.” -Mabel Christie
