Got 10 minutes on Saturday, January 21 to tell us your Kodak story? We'll be listening at the Rochester Public Market from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Kodak may be struggling, but its legacy lives on in the Rochester community.

Did you or a family member work for the company? Did you grow up in the shadow of one of Kodak's plants? Did working at Kodak springboard you to a new career, or drag you from one Kodak town to another during your childhood?

Whatever your Kodak story, the Innovation Trail wants to hear it.

Thanks to everyone who joined us at the Rochester Public Market on Saturday, January 21 at The Yards collaborative art space
