Pandemic Stories Project 2020-2021
The Canosia Township Historical Society is collecting first-hand accounts how the pandemic affected Canosia Township residents to document this noteworthy time in our history.
Tell us what this pandemic, the virus, shortages, restrictions, quarantining, schooling at home, etc., meant to you and your family.
Write a little or write a lot, we want to hear from you!
The Historical Society will collect these stories and archive them for future generations.
You can mail your story to the Town Hall at 4896 Midway Road, Duluth, Minnesota, 55811, drop it in the slot on the side of the building, or e-mail it to CanosiaHistory@gmail.com.
