Local Post Offices Slated for Closure
This morning our US Postal Service announced that it was thinking about shutting down over 3600 post offices around the country. The financially challenged agency has been cutting back on services and more rural post offices are next to be slapped with cancellation notices. First on the list is Blocksburg. Other local and much needed offices are in Honeydew, Kneeland, Phillipsville, Redcrest, Samoa, Weott, and Zenia. What will these small towns do without their meeting places?
Another blow to our rural communities. My husband and I have shared a post office box in Phillipsville since 1982.
