August 3, 1985

On August 3, 1985, mail service was returned to a nudist colony in Paradise Lake, Florida. It had been suspended because the mailperson had complained about delivering mail to a bunch of naked men and women. The original postal worker didn’t have a problem delivering mail to the nudist colony, but when a different mail carrier (and yes, it was a female mailman, or a femailman) took over the route, she refused to take the people their mail, because it offended her. Mail service was returned when the residents promised they’d wear clothes or stay out of sight when the mailperson came to deliver.
