The episode begins with a story about the revitalization of the Historic State Theater in Windom. For the past several years, volunteers have been working to raise money to restore the historic marquee and the treasured building, which serves as a social hub for the community. Buckwheat Johnson, President of Windom State Theater Inc. is featured on the program as he recalls receiving generous donations from people all over Minnesota to help the theater make the conversion to digital projection. "We're just totally blown away," Johnson says. "We had some donations, some local people, some businesses that helped with this and to get two checks from the cities from people who have no real connection with Windom let alone the theater, we were just amazed they would do that."
The Postcards show continues with a segment featuring the Worthington International Festival-- an annual event taking place each summer in downtown Worthington with a mission to promote acceptance of individual differences and foster relationships between the many ethnic groups that call Worthington home. The story features Worthington resident MayLary Htoo from Burma. "We have a lot of refugees coming from many different countries. So Worthington is colorful and culture-full," says Htoo.
The final segment of the upcoming Postcards episode tells the story of the outgoing director of the Willmar Area Symphonic Orchestra, Steven Eckblad. Eckblad was only one of four directors that the Willmar Orchestra has had in its 60 year history. Through interviews and footage from a concert held in May 2013, Postcards pays a tribute to the much beloved Eckblad. "I joke with the orchestra that conductors and ministers shouldn't stay longer than ten years," Eckblad said. "But, it's time for somebody else."
