A Note from the President

Hello everyone,


I know I do not say this enough so I will say it now, thank you, all of you, so much for supporting MO-TELL. We have wonderful members and followers on our team, and I am so grateful. Many thanks to the board, Sue Hinkel, Jim Two Crows Wallen, Gary Kuntz, Linda Kuntz and Perrin Stifel and to our volunteers. We would not be where we are without them. Thank you, Ken Wolfe, as creative director of the newsletter. We would love to have more followers so if any of you are interested in joining the board or volunteering for MO-TELL, let me know.


The Liar’s Contest on July 11, proved that Missouri Storytelling is important to a lot of people both in and out of Missouri. There was a great audience in attendance from all over. Even our judges came from a variety of states, Missouri, Kansas, Massachusetts and Hawaii. Our tellers were from Missouri and Illinois. What a day! Thank you for being there.

For now, storytelling in the Missouri State Parks and Historic Sites is on hold, but we are talking to the parks personnel and making plans. Thanks for your patience.


Schools all over are opening up again either virtually, in person or a hybrid method. Please stay safe and healthy.


Let us hear from you.
