Another rural New England post office story

The small Massachusetts town of Royalton just voted to set up a contract postal unit, rather than see their "tiny post office" close.
The board put the article on the meeting warrant after Pauline Caranfa, who holds the current agreement with the U.S. Postal Service, announced she was planning to leave her job to go back to college. If no one had taken over the operation, the postal service could have closed the building and possibly eliminated the town’s ZIP code, 01368.
Interesting to compare with ours.
