How Can I Help Save the Upham's Corner Post Office?

Posted: December 21, 2011     Nancy J Conrad

11/8/2011 The Upham's Corner Post Office was included in the list of 3,700 post offices nationwide that are scheduled for closing or "discontinuance."

Documentation in support of the Upham's corner Post Office due in to the Postal Service by January 8, 2012

12/13/2011 Post Service agrees to moratorium until May 15, 2012 but will continue to review post offices for closing


Make a commitment to let your voice be heard.  A moratorium is just a delay.  The Upham's Corner Post Office is still scheduled for closure unless the community can make sufficient "noise" to convince the Postal Service that it should stay open.

According to Michael Foley, Discontinuance Coordinator, the timelines DO NOT change.  Documentation in support of the Upham's Corner Post Office must be in to the Postal Service by January 8, 2012.
