Travelers Sending Postcards for 20 Summers

Why can't local newspapers or even our local government promote postcards like this idea. It will definitely help our tourism slogan "It's More Fun in the Philippines."

-------------------------------------------------------

For 20 summers, the readers of The Augusta Chronicle have reported their June-July-August trips through vacation postcards. For 20 summers we have made a game of it, trying to get a postcard from all 50 states, and for the past 19 you have succeeded admirably.
