The Broomes Island post office, was built by my mother's uncle, Thawley Parks, in the 1940s, and her Aunt Elsie was its postmaster for about 30 years. Why would the USPS want to close this post office when it has been in service for over 60 years? Every time we return to Calvert County we see more urban sprawl, and more landmarks lost without any record left for the generations to come. Most of the tobacco barns in Calvert County are gone! PLEASE save this Post Office!
