Smithfield Post Office Renamed After Ava Gardner



The Smithfield Post Office now is named the Ava Gardner Post Office to honor the local native who was one of the world's best-known actresses

Taking into account her becoming one of the world's best-known actresses, Oscar-nominated actress Ava Gardner has the Smithfield Post Office renamed after her.

Rep. Bob Etheridge, D-N.C., sponsored a bill to rename the post office and it was signed Monday by President Bush.

"Ava Gardner was a small-town girl who became a big-time celebrity," said Etheridge while adding "She represents the can-do attitude and patriotism of the people of Smithfield and Johnston County."
