I’ve been thinking about this idea for a while now… Racine Remembers. YES… I’ve talked about it social events and now I’m ready to hear your thoughts. I think Racine’s manufacturing legacy is cool. And we have so many companies that continue to be at the forefront of their markets. Then we have the entrepreneurs who are fearlessly creating. I want those stories. And I want you to hear them too at a storytelling event at 410 Main St.

So I’m challenging the community to tell its best innovation stories and we’ll get together to hear them. I’d also like to see if I can get some sponsors for this event, which will include trivia, music (perhaps), storytelling, a little food and beverage… and there you go, it’s a magical evening of fun.

But it begins with you. Check out my video to learn more. And if you’ve got a great story you are willing to share publicly and in front of people, email me at racinecountyeye@gmail.com and put Invention in the subject line.

Love what we do?

In addition to our education features, we’ll be kicking off a series of stories highlighting how parents, students, and educators are adapting to the impact of COVID-19 on education.
