Committee continues planning Wilmington celebration, for now

WILMINGTON — We, the Wilmington Old Home Week Committee, are continuing to plan the event scheduled for July 30 through Aug. 2.

We know that it is possible that we might have to cancel or postpone the wonderful celebration, but we will not make that final decision until early June. At that point, we hope to know more so that we can determine whether it will be safe to come together for this tradition, held every 10 years since 1890.

The Committee will be posting updates at wilmingtonohw2020.org. You can also go there to find out about scheduled events, Old Home Week's history, memorabilia, and much more. Our Facebook page is Wilmington Old Home 2020. We also post information on that.

We look forward to coming together as a community of people who love Wilmington - and we hope that time will be this summer. Please do what you need to do to stop the spread of this horrible virus so that we can return to normal activities sooner rather than later.
