WILMINGTON — Utilizing the talent of local photographers, Main Street Wilmington is proud to offer four postcards featuring images of downtown Wilmington for residents and visitors to use and enjoy.

The original images were part of a photography exhibit held at the Wilmington Public Library in March. Visitors to the exhibit voted on their favorites, and those photographs were chosen as subjects for the postcards.

These four scenes of Wilmington which were reproduced as postcards through support from the mayor’s office, were original photos by local residents Amanda Kratzer, Annen Vance, Barb Regan and Isabelle Allbright.

“We are really excited to offer postcards to the general public,” said Darcy Reynolds, Co-Director of Main Street Wilmington. “We receive frequent requests from people who want to share a scene from home with family or friends who have left the area. The postcards will be a fun way to keep in touch.”

Postcards are available in the following locations: Clinton County Convention and Visitors Bureau, Wilmington City Building, Clinton County History Center, South Street Wine Cellar, General Denver Hotel, Strength and Dignity Boutique, Wilmington Public Library, Papsy’s Place, Clinton County Courthouse, Cape May Retirement Village, and the Main Street Wilmington office at 63 W. Main St.

While postcards are free, donations are encouraged which will be used to produce another postcard collection in 2020.
