About the Arts and Heritage Group: Our newly remodeled Town Hall offers space for people to gather to share experiences and memories. It also offers space where historic artifacts, photographs, maps, paintings, quilts, fiber art and other items that reflect our heritage may be on display. A group of community members has been working on identifying ways in which the Town Hall can be a resource center, display space, and gathering place and we welcome your input! Please contact us if you have old photos of homesteading and/or activities within the township that you would be willing to have copied and displayed or artifacts (e.g. small pieces of farm equipment, old tools, household items, etc…) you would be willing to loan for inside display. We do not have the capacity to store items so they will be returned to you immediately following the display. Contact info: Jo Thompson firstname.lastname@example.org or Duane Madison at 525-5645.
Please do not drop off items at the Town Hall. Thank you.
Saturday Night Out: Social Spots
There was a time the Duluth Township neighborhood was
a hopping place. In the past people gathered at taverns,
restaurants, dance halls and perhaps, even at one time,
speakeasies! There was live theater and a drive-in on
the shore. Mark your calendars for November 2, 2019,
6:30 to 9 pm for a Saturday Night Out and enjoy photos
and presentations on the social spots that occupied our
Township in years past. The agenda isn’t firmed up yet,
so if you know of and/or have photos or stories of any of
these “spots”. Please let Duane Madison know (525-
5854) or leave an email message for Jo Thompson at
email@example.com . We are hoping to add
some old music to the event also. Look for more detail in
the September Newsletter.
