Rain or Shine, The Ambassadors Are Here To Help You

Posted Mar 4th, 2019 in Feat of the Week


In Wilmington, this time of year is commonly referred to as “Yo-Yo season” or “Rollercoaster season” because of the unpredictability of the weather. You can be heading outside to enjoy the balmy 70⁰F warmth one day and bundling up to brace for a 30⁰F freeze the next.

The level and frequency of precipitation can be equally unpredictable. It may be dry and sunny when you leave the house for a shopping trip or to dine at one of the many fabulous downtown restaurants; yet, it can be pouring rain when you’re heading home. This past weekend’s weather was unpredictably mixed and you may have been caught out by the random showers.

In anticipation of this potential inconvenience, the Municipal Service District Ambassadors carry umbrellas. You can call an Ambassador seven days a week during operating hours and request an escort to accompany you back to your car or to any place within the downtown area. If needed, the Ambassador will share an umbrella to help keep you dry. Several people benefited from this service during the weekend.

The free, security escort service is just one of the many functions of the MSD Ambassadors. The Ambassador team works seven days a week, from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday to ensure that Downtown Wilmington is a safe and inviting place for you. Hours on Friday and Saturday are 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m.  Sunday hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. 

They can be reached during operating hours by phone or text at 910.524.3600 or via email at ambassador@wilmingtondowntown.com
