COVID-19 | Help Capture History from Home!

Posted by Port Colborne Historical & Marine Museum on Thursday, April 9th, 2020

The Port Colborne Historical & Marine Museum is calling on you to #PORTicipate in history!

This is an extraordinary time within history that future citizens of Port Colborne will look back upon. We are asking for handwritten letters of your personal experience during COVID-19 - share with us your thoughts, feelings, drawings, photographs, and/or daily activities at home. Everyone of all ages is welcome to #PORTicipate!

Please mail your letters to the Port Colborne Historical & Marine Museum or place them in the mailbox at the Museum front door.

PO Box 572
Port Colborne, ON
L3K 5X8

If you do not have the supplies to mail us a letter you can request a kit (paper, stamp, and envelope) to be mailed to you.

In addition, please let us know in your letter if you would like the Museum staff to send you a reply. These letters will be compiled in our Heritage Resource Centre and Archives, and may one day be part of the collection for future generations to read. Thank you for your help!
