The Secret Postcard Project, Wish You Were Here!

 


 

 

Dear Friends,

 

We hope you enjoyed the Secret Postcard Project. It raised valuable funds that ensure the future of OHS but, more importantly, it brought our community together. We extend a sincere ‘thank you’ to all who participated.

 

FINAL COUNTS:

 

⇒  174 Postcards were submitted by 144 artists

⇒  24 Faces of Oysterponds plus all the Postcards were projected at four sites

⇒  167 Attendees at the Postcard Viewing Event in Poquatuck Park

⇒  184 Bidders submitted 955 bids

⇒  82 Bidders purchased 174 postcards

 

More than anyone dreamed possible, through Postcard purchases, a total of $30,383 was donated to OHS to help it fulfill its mission to preserve and celebrate the history of Oysterponds.

 

We could not be more grateful to the artists who participated, the volunteers who worked tirelessly to put it all together, the generous donors who bid vigorously and repeatedly for the remarkable postcards, and the support of our sponsors.

 

Thank you to all—your participation in the Secret Postcard Project continues a tradition of joining together to have fun and support Oysterponds Historical Society. Your invaluable involvement helps this cherished community and cultural hub to grow and thrive.
