    Cindy Wheeler’s second-grade class at Kathryn Winn Primary school is asking the community to help in its quest to get a postcard from every state in the union – and maybe a few more.

    The students are hoping for people to send them from their vacation destinations or other travels, or to enlist the help of far-flung relatives.

    The project began with last year’s class, which ultimately  received cards from all seven continents and, eventually, all 50 states. Delaware was the last state to be heard from.
