Reporter Ross Farrow passed along a unique postcard recently: President Obama meeting with B.J. Hill, who trekked through Lodi in 2008.

Hill stopped in the area as he gathered messages for the president. He wound up his cross-country walk in November of 2008 and met with Obama in December of 2011. The White House sent along photos of Hill with the president, and Hill was kind enough to send one, in the form of a postcard, along to Ross.

Hill, by the way, now works as at a non-profit adoption agency in Worcester, Mass.
