Limited Edition Cards Available

By Staff | Jul 1, 2008

The Emmetsburg Retail Association has introduced a deck of playing cards which highlight some of the historical past of Emmetsburg.

This deck of playing cards takes on the look of years gone by. Covering a span of over 100 years, each card face highlights a photo ranging anywhere from the late 1800s to the mid 1970s. The cards feature historical building and events and historical figures that bring out the unique history of Emmetsburg.

“We expect these cards to be in great demand during the Sesquicentennial this weekend,” said Steve Heldt, a member of the project committee. “This is a limited edition and the cards will not be reprinted, so see a representative now to get your deck that features 55 Emmetsburg images.”

Emmetsburg Souvenir Playing Cards are available at the Chamber of Commerce, Calico Cupboard, Main Street Memories Mall and from Steve Heldt at City Hall.

The Retail Association is preserving the past for future generations with this preservation of history.
