by | Sep 27, 2022 | News | 0 comments

To so many, Kids Canal is a special place full of summer memories. To ensure those memories are preserved, the Uintah Heritage Museum and Uintah County Library are inviting all to share their stories, pictures, and even artwork of Kids Canal. Library and Museum Director Sam Passey explains that they want people to help by being citizen historians. “As far as the library and museum goes, we are not taking a position of what happens with the Kids Canal,” shares Passey. “We simply want to collect your stories to be included in a future exhibit in the Heritage Museum.” Staff from the library and museum attended the Kids Canal celebration that took place on Saturday in order to start collecting stories from those who wished to share and they hope the rest of the community  will join in as well. Visit www.kidscanalstories.org and click on ‘Submit Your Story’. A form opens that will allow you to write a memory, attach photos, art work or even a video. The website also contains an account of the history of Kids Canal, historic photos, newspaper clippings, and art work. The project is thanks to funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities as part of the American Recovery Plan.
