Share Your Story

A great Hear, Here story will mean something to you, the storyteller, and demonstrate something meaningful to the listener. Examples of stories well suited to Hear, Here include a tale that conveys why the downtown is a great place to own a business or an account of an event that is unknown or forgotten, but speaks to the sensibility of a particular time in La Crosse history. Above all, each story must somehow relate to a particular location and come from a personal point of view.

Think about why other people need to hear your story, and what the listeners can take away from it that may change the way they look at the city.
