The Olympics have come and gone, but we have a lot of great memories of area athletes making a big impact. Tuesday afternoon, the community is invited to the DECC to honor our Twin Ports Olympians.
The City of Duluth is hosting a public recognition program on Tuesday, February 27, at the Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center, Lake Superior Ballroom from 4:30-6:00 p.m. Members of the U.S. Women's and Men's Curling Teams, Cross Country Skiing Coach Chad Salmela and other Olympic team representatives will be present.
